TTC 2020

District 7’s Orchestra Program will hold their annual Tiger Town Consortium (TTC) concert at EHS on Saturday, March 21 at 7pm!!
WHAT IS THE TIGER TOWN CONSORTIUM?
The Tiger Town Consortium is the all-school District 7 orchestra concert held at EHS in the spring of each year. It features performances from our 500+ orchestra students in grades 5 through 12. There is no admission charge for this event; however, this is our program’s largest fundraiser of the year! 100% of the proceeds from t-shirt sales, the raffle, silent auction and donations go back to our orchestra program.
The attached file will give you all the information you need regarding the schedule, what to expect, and how you can support the District 7 Orchestra program at this event!
