Cross Town Showdown 2014

Tonight's Cross Town Showdown was a great example of the collaborative spirit that exists between the Fine Arts Departments at DGN and DGS. Leading a cast of nearly 400 musicians from the two schools, DGS faculty member Greg Hensel conducted the National Anthem during Pre Game. At Half Time both bands performed independently as well as collaboratively with one another.

Congratulations to all involved!
