Damascus Middle School Band Students Have “Opportunity of a Lifetime”
On Thursday, January 19, students from the Cavalier Band, along with over 1000 other band students from around the region, had the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to Emory & Henry College to hear the Canadian Brass. According to their website, “Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of ‘the world’s most famous brass group.’" Not only does the Canadian Brass do an amazing job of performing music, but they also have “developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences.” DMS students had better-than-front-row seats; they were seated right on the stage at the McGlothlin Center! DMS students thoroughly enjoyed the event, and several noted that seeing the Canadian Brass inspired them. “Awesome” and “amazing” were two words used by students to describe this incredible experience!
