Lake Forest Academy sophomore Tanya Ganesh ’24 was recently selected to the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) Orchestra.

Illinois is divided into nine districts and each district holds auditions to choose participants for their festival. The festival includes band, orchestra, jazz, and chorus ensembles.

On November 6, Tanya rehearsed with their ensemble. Tanya was selected for the All-State Festival that takes place in January in Peoria, Illinois.

According to the organization’s website, “The Illinois Music Education Association exists to advocate for universal access to comprehensive music education; deliver exemplary professional development for educators; and provide outstanding musical experiences for all Illinois learners facilitated by licensed music educators.”

Congratulations, Tanya!
