8TH ANNUAL OBA CONCERT BAND FESTIVAL

DATE: February 12, 2010

Yesterday Dante competed for the fourth time in school history in the 8th Annual OBA Concert Band Festival. This years band is made up of mostly grade 9 students with some grade 10 students. The band put on a fantastic performance with much attention to rhythmic accuracy. Although some work is still needed on the finer details, the judges were very impressed with the young bands enthusiasm and awesome energy! In the end we were awarded the Bronze Plus Award. We look forward to competing at the Golden Horseshoe Music Festival next week in Ancaster Ontario.

Special thanks to Miss Scaffidi Saggio and Mr. Quaglietta.

Kind Regards
