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.

Beginning in 2017, scholarships, totaling $28,000, have been given to nineteen (19) deserving students. The purpose of the Fund is to recognize and to promote the excellence of the HCHS Music Department and of its students.
