Thank you to all our current (and future!) DGN band students for their work preparing the audition materials for the 2013-14 academic year.  We heard some wonderful auditions from many 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th grade students.  The future is bright for the DGN Bands!  We look forward to making great music with all three concert band classes next year.
