Hinsdale Central High School

Mission Statement

The study of music involves participation, discussion and performance of musical works that have artistic and historical importance. Each student will strive to develop his or her own skills to the highest possible level. In support of these ideals, we endeavor to create quality large ensemble performances, study music of historical significance, rehearse separately and together to develop expertise, establish relationships that foster understanding, discover the relationships between music and culture, and become lifelong musical learners.

Hansen Family Scholarship

We are pleased to announce that the Hinsdale Central High School Foundation (the "Foundation") and the Hansen Family Music Excellence Scholarship Fund (the "Fund") are once again providing three (3) $1,750 scholarship grants (the "Scholarship(s)") to 2022 graduating HCHS seniors in the HCHS Music Department. Beginning in 2017, scholarships, totaling $21,000, have been given to fifteen (15) deserving students and are being provided to recognize and to promote the excellence of the HCHS Music Department and of its students. Each of the three main HCHS Music Department Performance Areas (Band, Orchestral and Vocal) will be represented with a student member being selected for one of the three merit-based Scholarships.

Please read the Instruction Sheet for your use. In this document, qualified HCHS Music Department students will find the requirements expected of them to be a successful recipient. The entire process is discussed and a link to an Application Form is provided.

Because of HCHS guidelines for the Senior Awards night, we have had to set Tuesday, March 8th at 11:59PM as the deadline for submission of a complete Application in order for it to be considered.
