Judges Compliment DIS Choir

On Friday May 17, the DIS Honor Choir spent a fun day in the sun at the NRH2O Choir Festival in North Richland Hills.

The choir, under the direction of Amanda Gillum, performed Charlottetown and a heart-warming “Over the Rainbow” with stunning solos by fifth grade student Suzy Lewis and sixth grade student Kelley-Anne Richards. Judge’s compliments to the choir included “energetic dynamics and musicality”, “strong 2- part singing”, and “an impressive mature sound”.

The DIS Honor Choir received a rating of “Superior plus,” a rating that DIS hasn’t received since 2011. Mrs. Gillum, DIS Principal Debra Moore, and the DIS Family are so proud of these students for their hard work and dedication.
