Most people visit Dorney Park in Pennsylvania for only fun. The Woodmere Middle School chamber orchestra and the jazz band had more fun than most as each captured first place in their respective categories at the 2023 Dorney Park Music in the Parks Competition on May 13.
The student musicians performed at a middle school in Bethelem, Pa., where the middle school orchestra even outpointed high school orchestras.
The students spent the remainder of Saturday having the proverbial amusement park fun.
Then the results were announced. The chamber orchestra also captured a trophy for overall performance.
