Music will be provided by the Dedham Middle School Jazz Band, and a few community arts groups will be present to share their summer youth programs with anyone interested.
The DMS Concerts will be held on May 23 and 25. The Bands will be featured on 5/23, while chorus and strings perform at the 5/25/ event. Riverdale Concerts will be held on 5/26, followed by Oakdale on 6/7, Greenlodge on 6/13, and Avery on 6/16.
Finally, the Fine Arts department wishes DHS Principal Ron McCarthy the best of luck as he leaves Dedham for a Principal position in Florida. Mr. McCarthy has been a big supporter of the arts in Dedham, and the growth of the art, band, and theater programs at Dedham High School would not have been possible without his guidance.
