2019 Pops Concert Ad Book – now open!

Ads are now available for our 2019 Pops Concert Ad Book!

25% of all ads sold go to student assessments, so this is a great way to help reduce the cost of Dayton trips for our indoor groups, or you may defer the assessment towards next year’s marching band trip. Students must sell ads in 3 of their 4 years in high school to qualify for DSMA scholarships, so if your student has not sold one yet this year, you still have the opportunity!

Please click this link to download the Ad Book order form, which contains all of the information needed to purchase ads and turn in the paperwork & funds. Any questions can be sent to Becky Amaral beckyamaral@dsmahome.org.

CONSISTENT FAN FAVORITES: DARTMOUTH HIGH SCHOOL (article from WGI)

The WGI website just published a fantastic article about both of our indoor programs! The writer spoke with our staff members, including Tom Aungst and Addison Kaeterle, about our percussion and guard groups and their history of being voted “Fan Favorites” consistently at WGI Finals in Dayton, Ohio.

The article goes in-depth on some details about how the shows are designed and developed, and also has some great pictures of our kids.

Be sure to check it out!

Congrats to our indoor percussion group – WGI Silver Medalists!

Congratulations to our indoor percussion group for coming in second place at the prestigious WGI World Championships in the Scholastic World division!

Our kids were up against some amazingly talented schools from throughout the country, all of whom put on fantastic shows. Dartmouth was in third place after the preliminary round, before moving up to second place after semi finals. Their finals performance was one for the ages, and their silver medal AND Fan Favorite awards were well deserved. 

We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to all of the staff members, volunteers, and parents who were tireless in making sure our students were well rested, well fed, well prepared, and well taken care of. 

This WGI World Championships was especially significant for Tom Aungst and Darcie Aungst, who got to see both of their sons medal with Dartmouth in Scholastic World, and also with RCC in Independent World.

After a few short months of rest, it will be time to get ready for marching band!

 

 

Congratulations to our indoor guards! Plus – April 2 percussion parent meeting postponed

Our varsity squad are the 2018 NESBA Scholastic Open Champions, winning yesterday in Salem MA with a score of 95.4. Earlier in the day, our junior varsity squad won the Middle School division with a score of 94.04. What a fantastic job by both groups! Our varsity squad is now preparing for WGI World Championships later this month, which are held in Dayton OH.
