If one ever wonders why/how the DGN Band functions at a high level, they need look no further than the dedication of our student leaders. After a lot of volunteer hours and hard work during Semester 1, it was nice to kick-back and relax today at our annual Band Student Leaders Holiday Party.

Also on campus today is Class of 2012 DGN alumnus Hannah Young (who will be accompanying the DGN Bands on harp at Carnegie Hall) as well as composer & conductor Don Owens (Northwestern University Professor Emeritus).
It was wonderful to welcome all of these special guests to campus today!
