Congrats DGN Vocal Festival Participants!

Congratulations to over 60 choir students who participated in our annual Vocal Festival today! Three guest clinicians worked in a masterclass format with our singers during each of our scheduled choir classes, providing a wonderful learning opportunity for both the soloists and the audience of choir students! 18 students were selected to compete in a "run-off" performance after school, and a small group of these students will be selected by our clinicians to sing alongside peers from DGS at our District Honors Recital in March.
We are so proud of our students' hard work and marvelous performances! Special thanks to our voice teachers for helping our students prepare for this event, and to our clinicians, Dr. Robert Sinclair, Mrs. Beth Best and Mrs. Robyn Wiper, for a wonderful day!
