Who are the Young Stracke All-Stars?
Since 2008, Chicago's Young Stracke All-Stars have been building bridges between legendary figures like Carl Sandburg and Woody Guthrie and the youth of today.
The band, made up of youth musicians ages 8 to 14, play music; celebrating the legacy of folk singer and early television star, and children's music and education pioneer, Win Stracke.
The Young Stracke All-Stars came out of the original lack of child musicians participating in the Old Town School’s Wincentennial celebration in 2008. Chris Walz, Wincentenial organizer and one of our biggest supporters once said, “The kids! That’s exactly what is missing.” The kids are students from group and private classes who have shown a dedication to the ideals of the Old Town School community
While all the musicians in the group are fantastic, being a “great musician” is not a prerequisite. The students who become Young Stracke All-Stars are many things including, dedicated, curious, passionate and enthusiastic about community music.
