Florida Trip Report

Congratulations to the band, choir, orchestra, and color guard from Downingtown East!

The music department travelled to Orlando, Florida from March 6-10 to perform for an international audience in Epcot and take part in a Disney Performing Arts workshop endorsed by The National Association for Music Education.  The trip was sponsored by the DHS Music Parents Association which provided ample fundraising opportunities to the students for the past year to ensure that no students were deprived of the opportunity to perform because of personal financial hardships.  When not performing or watching their classmates perform, the students were able to view some of Disney's professional music performances for further enrichment.  It was a great honor for the DEHS music department to represent DASD by performing at one of the most high-profile venues in the world!

Congratulations to the students who were accepted
 to the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association District 12 Chorus,  representing
 the best high school singers from over 30 schools in the Philadelphia, Delaware,
 and Chester Counties that auditioned this past Saturday.
