At Addison Trail and Willowbrook high schools, there is a legacy and a tradition of excellence in the schools’ music departments.

And this past school year, both buildings were awarded the Young People’s Music Initiative Grant to ensure that level of success continues, which is a donation from the JCS Fund of the DuPage Foundation.

Through that donation, Addison Trail and Willowbrook each received about $25,000 to support student-musicians by implementing the following:

“We are proud and privileged to have tremendous music programs in District 88,” said Addison Trail Music Department Head Mark Corey and Willowbrook Music Department Head Karyn Wolcott. “Our student-musicians continue to achieve at the state and national levels, and this generous donation will help ensure those accomplishments continue for years to come. This support will provide our pupils with opportunities they might otherwise not be able to experience, and it will allow us to grow and expand our high-quality programs.”
