The Lead-Deadwood High School (LDHS) band is under the direction of Mick Dragoo. The Lead-Deadwood High School instrumental music students are in preparations for their annual Solo/Ensemble Contest. This will take place on Wednesday, February 8, 2017, at the Rapid City Civic Center. The all day event involves hundreds of high school students from throughout western South Dakota. Students will perform solos and participate in ensembles ranging from two to twenty in front of judges who will provide ratings and valuable comments to help students improve their performing skills.
Deadwood History’s Executive Director, Carolyn Weber, will present the Lead-Deadwood band with a check in the amount of $850. The gift is funded through the generous support of the Walter and Frances Green Charitable Trust. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. The HARCC is located at 150 Sherman Street, Deadwood.
The event is co-sponsored by the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Deadwood History, and Walter and Frances Green Charitable Trust.
We inspire the global community by preserving and celebrating the cultural heritage of Deadwood and the Black Hills in the context of the American West through exceptional exhibits, innovative educational programs, and access to extensive collections in unique settings.
