In This Issue
Dewitt provides a plentiful array of music opportunities and performances. Our upcoming performances include a chorale concert, an orchestra concert, and a band concert, all of which will be held at the Kulp Auditorium in Ithaca High School. Past performances have had wonderful turnouts, and are treasured as excellent showcases for students’ work.
If you have ever been to one of these concerts, you know that the enjoyment isn’t just in the audience; the students are delighted to share their music and the work they have put into it. Viewing the concert, you will be able to see their enthusiasm in the pieces themselves.
