As many of you may know, the Music Department participated in the Kiwanis Music Festival this year. All five bands (Grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11/12) played extremely well, earning 4 Gold and 1 Platinum award. This past Tuesday, Mr. Shields and Mr. Thompson represented the school at a Gala dinner and awards ceremony held at Casa Loma. Along with a three-course dinner and entertainment by some of the winning participants, there was an awards ceremony.
Of the literally hundreds of bands that participated in many categories, De La Salle was one of only two schools to receive a scholarship as recommended by the adjudicators.
Del received the Eric Mundinger Memorial Award that came with a $500.00 scholarship to be used for the Music Department.
This award is a complete testament to the dedication, hard work, early morning rehearsals and at-home practicing of our talented students (and their parents who support them and drive them where they need to be.)
