DSAO News and Updates – Week of 11 March 2018



A Rewarding set of Trips

Our high school orchestra together with DSA band students received the third place award in The National Orchestra Cup competition! At the American String Teachers (ASTA) National Orchestra Festival, the DSA high school string orchestra received a superior rating from all three judges!

Our middle school orchestra were first in their division and are the 2018 National Grand Champions!

Congratulations to all the DSA students who competed! A big thank you to all the parents who helped organize or served as chaperones on the trip! Finally a huge thank you to our excellent Master Mentors who coach our students on a weekly basis: Ben Tomkins, Robyn Julyan, Paul Primus, Matt Diekman, Danielle Guideri, David Short, Jeremy Nicholas and Mark Stefaniw. We could not have achieved these honors without your contributions!
