DSC HONORS PROJECT PERFORMANCE
Glenwood City High School Music Department Hosts

Glenwood City High School was the site of the 2015 Dunn-St. Croix Honors Project and a performance by the DSC Honors Band and Choir.  Students from Boyceville, Colfax, Durand, Elmwood, Glenwood City, Mondovi, Pepin and Spring Valley descended on Glenwood City twice this week - Wednesday, January 28 for the one and only rehearsal opportunity and again on Saturday, January 31 for a performance.  In addition to thanking the choir and band directors from each participating school, the Glenwood City Administration would like to recognize Mrs. Angela Hierlmeier, Mr. Matt Lamb and the Custodial Department for the successful completion of such an important program.

DSC Honors Project History - 

In 1979, the idea to bring together the finest musicians of the Dunn-St.Croix Conference to form an Honors Choir and Honors Band became a reality.  Since the beginning, the philosophy was to have students from different schools work together toward a common goal of cooperation and excellence, rather than only competing against each of an athletic field.

Members of the honors groups are chosen based on student achievements through involvement in musical activities as well as their director's recommendation.  Each of the schools in the DSC takes a turn as host school for the festival.

In recent years, the Honors Project has had the privilege of having a guest conductor work with one of the groups, alternating between band and choir.  This year, the group was honored by Dr. Frank Watkins who served as the Honors Choir Director and Clinician.
