On Saturday, May 5, Baldi Middle School musicians packed up their instruments and spent the day in Dorney Park. This was no ordinary field trip - students in the Baldi String Orchestra and the Baldi Band had the opportunity to perform in the 2012 Music in the Parks competition, held annually at the amusement park. Schools from across the midatlantic region (New York, New Jersey, Delaware) performed throughout the day.
Last year, Baldi students traveled to Music in the Parks for the first time and achieved a slew of awards. This year was no different! Both the String Orchestra and the Band came in first place with excellent ratings. The band also received the award for Best Overall Middle School Band, indicating that their scores were higher than any other middle school band in all divisions.
To top it off, Baldi received the Espirit de Corps award for best musicianship on the stage, best citizenship, and best behavior. Baldi took home this prize last year as well.
A big congratulations to these fantastic musicians!
