    Grade Level Music Programs for Benjamin Elementary School
     
     All concerts are held at Normal Community High School located at 
    3900 East Raab Road, Normal , IL 61761.
     
     
    We are very fortunate to be able to use the auditorium at Normal Community High School for our concerts.  Their space provides the ease of parking, comfortable seating where everyone can see their child, and a stage that fits all of our students and has good acoustics.  Concert dates are planned around Elementary Parent Conferences, 5th grade Band and Orchestra concerts at the Junior High School and all the High School events (fall play, band, orchestra, choir, etc) that oocur throughout the fall, winter and spring.  I have lots of questions each year about how long the concerts will last.  I have tried my best to approximate times for each concert.  Concert dates for the 2018-2019 are below:
