Real Bands Wear Kilts!
Dunedin High School is located in Dunedin, Florida, and was first opened in 1961. The school embraced the Scottish heritage of the city, and became widely known for having an outstanding performing arts program that incorporated the Scottish Arts. Today, this Pinellas County school proudly upholds the tradition of excellence established over 50 years ago. The Instrumental Music Department at DHS has expanded to include a jazz ensemble, percussion ensemble, and a concert orchestra in addition to the symphonic wind bands, pipe band, Highland dancers, and iconic Scottish Highlander Marching Band.
This past Thursday (3/2/23), our Chamber Orchestra went to District MPA at Largo High School. This year has been difficult, because HALF of the class has either:
- Started playing an instrument for the 1st time!
- Have never been in orchestra.
Safe to say, they all worked hard and earned STRAIGHT SUPERIORS!
On another note, our Pipe Band went and competed in Ft. Lauderdale. It’s been a little tough to come back from covid, but Saturday (3/4/23) they finally got what was coming through all their hard work and dedication. They won First Place in their grade 4 category and a lot of our students got individual awards.
