The Downingtown East HS Barbershop Festival was awarded a $500 grant from the Young Singers Foundation of Sweet Adelines International to offset the cost of our next youth festival. The grant was researched by senior DEHS choir student Julianne Borst, who is the chair of the fundraising committee and the proposal was written by senior DEHS choir student Katelyn Mahoney. The grant recognizes the efforts of our choral program to expose students to the genre of Barbershop music and will allow us to purchase sheet music and food for our next workshop as well as offset the transportation costs and offer a possible stipend for the guest clinicians who are specialists in the field to come in and work with our students.
Thank you to the Young Singers Foundation of Sweet Adelines International for their generosity and support of this endeavor.
Congratulations Julianne Borst and Katelyn Mahoney
