Chuck Cain, a musician from Elburn, spent two weeks this summer studying jazz at Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Door County, Wis. He is the son of Lora and John Cain and studies drums privately with Aaron Puckett, and is a student at Kaneland High School.

Cain is the 2009 winner of the Special Recognition for Outstanding Musicianship Award. He was among 94 young musicians selected from throughout the country to attend one of two Big Band Jazz sessions at the school, which provides intensive, performance-based instruction to musicians age 12-19 by immersing them in a professional, mentoring environment.
