Shorewood Orchestra Festival & "Cannon" Finale

On Thursday, March 27, 2014, the School District of Shorewood will be presenting the annual District Orchestra Festival.  This concert will involve over 500 musicians from Lake Bluff, Atwater, SIS and SHS.  The performance will be held in the SHS Arena at 7 p.m.

For this year’s finale, the orchestra students will perform Tschaikovsky’s “1812 Overture,” and as part of the performance, a member of the North Shore Fire Department will be setting off 13 small explosions (representing the famous cannon shots in the overture).  These “cannon shots” will occur at approximately 8 p.m. at the west entrance to the Arena.  The Shorewood Police Department and the Shorewood Village Hall have been notified of the cannon shots, and we are alerting nearby residents so that everyone understands the origin of the loud sounds.
