DHS Drama Club presents

DSCN1066The DHS Marching Band finished their competitive season on November 2nd at the New England Scholastic Band Association Championships in Lawrence.   Congratulations to the members and staff for all their hard work this season as they presented music from Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird.  The band competed in Division 1 and received a Gold Medal rating at Finals. You can see photos of the day on the ->Marauder band site.

The Marching Band and Guard will be holding their end of season banquet on Wednesday, November 20th.  Parents and students will be sent detailed information as that event approaches.

The DHS Jazz Band just finished auditions and begin their regular Tuesday rehearsal schedule. We will be having sign-ups for Winter Guard and Percussion groups before Thanksgiving.  The season for both of these ensembles runs from early December until the NESBA Championships in early April.

DSCN0988Several members of the DHS band performed at the Art Show run by the Dedham Senior Council on Aging.  This event was held at the Endicott Estate on October 30th and featured works by many Dedham artists. The students performed classical and jazz pieces to enhance the gallery effect for patrons of the art show.  Thanks to Jack Brown, Tim Bifano, Joseph Borsellino, Brendan Hart, and Noah Littman for their time and talents.

The Dedham Music Association held a full parent meeting on October 16th.  This parent booster group is looking to expand their scope of support to include all band, choral, and theatre groups. The DMA is building a member list of interested parents to become active in some way to increase support for all performing groups. If you would like to be added to the DMS mailing list, please email Mr. Bolduc at jbolduc@dedham.k12.ma.us.  He will pass on your info to the association.
