Iolani School's orchestra is headed to the Windy City of Chicago this week to perform at the most prestigious showcase for high school bands and orchestras in the country.

The group of more than 50 students in grades 7 through 12 will perform Friday at the Midwest Clinic International Band and Orchestra Conference.

It's the largest instrumental music education conference in the world.

Iolani is one of just five high school string orchestras selected to perform.

A hula halau will also dance.

The school was invited to the conference in 2011 as well.
