- 10/15/18--07:00: Upper School Musicians Mentored by Professionals from DSO
- 10/16/18--08:00: Lower School Groundbreaking
As part of our school's continuing efforts to create professional partnership experiences in the arts, some students from the DCDS Honors Symphonic Orchestra had the unique opportunity to work with musicians from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Experiences such as these have proven to be immensely beneficial to our students and provide a networking opportunity with individuals whose profession is in the arts. From the DSO we had -
Strings - violinist - Alexandros Sakarellos
Strings - cellist - Abraham Feder
Brass - trombonist - David Binder
Woodwinds - clarinetist - Shannon Orme
The next phase of the Vivid Campaign is officially underway following our groundbreaking ceremony with the Hamlet children. Speaking at the event was Headmaster Shilling, Terry Barr '86, and Robert Parker '91, who are both trustees, alumni, and current parents. All shared their personal perspectives and enthusiasm with this phase of the project. Also, in attendance were trustees Jonathan Aaron, Danialle Karmanos, and Anne Weiner.
Another exciting moment was when the Zandstra family posed with a large crane and Mr. Zandstra, who bought the right to tear down a wall in the silent auction at the Vivid Occasion held last spring, took his job seriously and knocked down a significant area of the old section of the Lower School.
Here are some articles from media coverage of the event:
