It is so nice to be able to plan for Spring tours and festival performances again!  That being said, there is a lot going on in DHS Music this semester;  if at any point you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

DHS Band Society:

The next meeting of the DHS Band Society will be Wednesday, February 8th at 7 PM in the DHS Music Room.


Your student should be bringing home information on the Mom's Pantry fundraiser, which will be starting this week.  Orders must be returned by Wednesday, February 15th.

There is also a bottle drive planned for Monday, February 13th.  Students and parents wanting to take part should meet in the foyer of DHS at 5:30 PM to sign in and receive routes.

Upcoming Trips:

Planning continues for the Grade 9 tour to the Moose Jaw Band and Choral Festival, and also the Symphonic Winds tour to the Maritimes.  A reminder that the next payment for both trips is due by Friday, March 3rd.  Grade 9 tour participants will need to submit $200 and Symphonic Winds tour members will need to submit $500.

All Symphonic Winds members and chaperones travelling to the Maritimes please note that we will be having a mandatory group meeting on Thursday, March 30th at 7 PM in the DHS Music Room to discuss final preparations for our departure.
