Lake Forest Academy's Davin Lee ’26 recently performed at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in New York City. The clarinet player was selected as a American Protégé International Woodwinds and Brass Competition winner and performed at Carnegie Hall with the other honorees during Thanksgiving break.

In addition to Lee’s performance, orchestra students from Lake Forest Academy recently performed with the Midwest Young Artists (MYA) Youth Orchestra, Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Orchestra Combo.
