The DCSS Concert Band has been awarded a $10 000 bursary from Musicounts, a non-profit organization that helps deserving public school music programs. The money will be used to buy new instruments, including flutes, clarinets, alto saxophones, and tenor saxophones. As more school instruments become available for students to use, the concert band and jazz band will continue to grow!
