March Highlights – Part 2

The All Town Chorus Concert has been postponed until March 26 due to the weather on the evening of the 21st.  It will still be held in the Dunne Auditorium at DHS. The concert will feature students from grades 5 to 12 and end with almost 300 students combining for a memorable finale. The concert starts at 7 and donations will be accepted at the door.

The means we once again need to reschedule the elementary Family Night of Folk Dance which was going to be on Monday, March 26th.  Check back here in the coming weeks for a new date.  This event invites students from grades K-5 to share dances from around the world with students from the ECEC and all four elementary schools. Parents are invited to not only attend, but participate in the dances. Teachers will introduce the steps for each song before leading everyone through each dance. The event will be in the Riverdale gym from 5:30 to 7.

The very next night, Dedham Middle School will host the annual Don Heald Night of Jazz. This tribute concert will feature the DMS and DHS Jazz Bands along with the DHS Chamber Choir. The concert starts at 7. Donations will be accepted at the door with all proceeds being donated to the ALS foundation in Mr. Heald’s name.

Special recognition to DHS freshman Katie Arbodela-> for being selected to the MMEA Eastern Jr. District chorus. Katie represented Dedham at the annual music festival with students from over 100 area schools.

Dedham Middle School will present their musical, Shrek, on April 4, 5, and 6. The cast and crew have been memorizing their lines and polishing the musical numbers as they approach opening night.
