Dublin High School Welcomes 17 Bands to Field Show Competition This Saturday

October 18, 2012

The second annual Dublin High School Irish Guard Field Show will take place this Saturday (Oct. 20, 2012) at the Dublin High Gaels Stadium, with bands from around the state coming to compete. Gates open to the public at 4 pm with the competition starting just before 5pm (the full schedule is included below). Admission is $12 per person. Come out and support our band, and bands from across the state, and see first-hand the value of music education.

According to a Harris Interactive poll of school principals, music programs contribute to higher attendance and graduation rates and The College Board reported in 2011 that SAT takers with coursework / experience in music performance scored 120 points higher on the verbal portion of the test (reading + writing) and 44 points higher on the math portion than students with no coursework or experience in the arts. SAT scores for those with coursework in music appreciation were 129 points higher on the verbal (reading + writing) and 43 points higher on the math portion. (Read more…)
