At the end of the annual Glenbrook Festival of Music on Sunday, March 8, guest conductor Dr. Eric Esparaza told the audience that what they just saw was anything but a “normal” performance.

“This hasn’t been a normal concert,” Esparaza said. “It’s not normal to see this many talented kids that we just saw from these two schools.

“They are amazing. You can go on the Internet and in an instant you’ll see meanness; these kids are countering that by injecting love into the world.”
