Fourth Graders from throughout CUSD 10 had a hands-on chance to learn about the district’s band program on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 when they gathered with their parents in the gym at Dorris Intermediate School.
The Dorris Intermediate School, Collinsville Middle School and Collinsville High School bands performed. Following a presentation by all three bands and their directors, the 4th graders were given an opportunity to learn about and try different musical instruments. Music department staff and musicians from the Collinsville High School Band helped inform and instruct them.
To enroll in the DIS Band next year as a 5th grader, the students must have parental permission and a recommendation from their current elementary music teacher.
