Symphonic Band Concert at OSU ALL Students and Parents are Encouraged to Attend

(Update: Last email inadvertently said the Winter Guard was Tuesday/Thursday.  It is really Tuesday/Wednesday.)

We hope to see as many DCHS Students and Parents as possible for our performance on Thursday, April 4!

Performance Details:

The Dublin Coffman Symphonic Band was asked by Dr. Mikkelson, Director of Bands at The Ohio State University, to perform a joint concert with the OSU Wind Symphony.  This is an exciting opportunity for our students to share the stage with one of the best collegiate bands in the United States.  Our performance will take place, this Thursday, April 4 at 7:00pm at Weigel Hall on the campus of OSU.
We hope that our students not involved in this performance would be able to attend this concert and we would love to also pack the house with as many Coffman parents as possible.
Joining us for this concert is DCHS '12 Grad, Grant Jameson.  Grant left for the United Kingdom as soon as he graduated to attend the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.  Check out this clip of a different piece featuring Grant.   He's really good......   
This concert will have compositions that the Symphonic Band will only be performing at OSU and it will also feature the OSU Wind Symphony.
