“For those whom have been with the district for a number of years, I believe that this is the first time any of the schools in our district have hosted something like this in IHSA history,” Sanders said. “It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our Rich East band, our school and music in general. I think this should definitely not be the last one that we host.”
