As we take a brief hiatus after our amazing string of December performances, best wishes to all supporters of our Fine Arts programs.
The Dedham High School Class of 2016 is excited to announce that their Senior Musical will be Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. New Director Megan Fusco and Music Director Mr. Nicholson have finished casting the show and begin rehearsals upon our return in January. The show will be presented on March 11 and 12 with all proceeds going to the Class of 2016. Thanks to Senior Class Advisors Ms. Basque and Ms. Carroll for all their help in coordinating this annual Dedham HS tradition.
December witnessed performances at every school by so many talented musicians. It was great to see all our beginner instrumentalists perform at their first concerts along side so many outstanding vocal groups. The middle and high school performing groups continue to grow and impress, performing a varied repertoire of holiday and concert selections.
Congratulations to all students and teachers for making the Holiday concerts such a success. The hard work through the first months of school was evident. We would also like to thank the Dedham School of Music teachers for their efforts to grow the after-school programs, and all parents who have helped in any way to make music performance a part of their child’s life.
Our next scheduled concert is the All-Town Band Concert in the DHS Gym on February 4th at 7pm. The concert will feature the DHS Winter Guard and Winter Percussion competitive groups, the combined elementary bands, DMS Concert and Symphonic Bands, and the DHS Concert Band. The concert will end with a combined performance by all band members from grades 4 to 12!
The DHS Winter Guard is preparing their show ‘Living’ for the 2016 season competing in the Independent Regional A Class of the New England Scholastic Band Association. Director Kimberly Bolduc welcomes a new staff as the guard begins their journey to the New England Championships at Salem HS on March 26th. The Guard Captains are Seniors Amber Dillon and Sarah Perno.
