There are great things happening at MDI High School in the Music Department! Thanks to Michael Remy for the information!


MDIHS winter concert is on Tuesday, December 18, at 6:30pm in the Higgins-Demas Theater. It will feature several small chamber ensembles, the concert chorus, the string orchestra and the symphonic band. Those interested in getting a preview of MDIHS jazz can come at 6pm and get a sneak preview of what we've been working on thus far.
