2018-19 All-City Spring Showcase

On May 19, 2019, over 200 CPS students from the Regional North and South/Loop All-City ensembles came together in a final performance at the Harris Theatre in downtown Chicago to celebrate and showcase their talents in theatre, dance, and music.

The program featured performances by the All-City Orchestra, Symphonic Band, Modern Band (Elementary and High School), Jazz Band, Theatre Ensemble, Dance Ensemble, and Chorus, and culminated in a spectacular finale featuring a mash-up of works by Queen, Beyoncé, and Prince!

A huge THANK YOU to the directors, students, families, Department staff, and crew of the Harris Theatre for supporting and nurturing our spectacularly talented CPS students and for making this showcase possible!
