After Prom Tickets

2017 After Prom tickets are being sold to juniors and seniors for $15 in the cafeteria this week during lunch. They can be purchased as part of a bundled transaction with a $55 Prom ticket as a one transaction purchase, or they can be purchased for the same $15 as a standalone ticket for anyone who chooses not to attend the Prom, but would enjoy a more casual evening out with friends at the Hockessin Athletic Club for After Prom. All are welcome!

Every ticket for AfterProm comes with the added benefit of the student’s name being put into an AfterProm drawing where five winners will each receive a $20 entry into the Firefly Raffle to win a pair of Firefly Tickets valued at $600. The five After Prom winners will be among the maximum of 300 tickets sold for the Raffle in order to maintain favorable winning odds. Depending on the popularity of the Firefly Raffle, there could be less than 300 tickets in the final drawing which further increases the value of the five After Prom Firefly entries being awarded.  Students must be present at the AfterProm in order to be eligible to win one of the five tickets.

We hope that all students will come celebrate with their peers at the After Prom – the Hockessin Athletic Club is a premium entertainment venue with an Olympic size swimming pool and slide for fun and games,  ping pong, video games, board games, music, snacks, and many other activities set up for a totally enjoyable casual wrap up to the school year and a big night out!

Denyce Graves Master Class – free and open to the public


The University of Delaware and the Delaware Symphony are partnering to present a master class with world renowned mezzo-soprano, Denyce Graves on Saturday, March 25th at 1pm at Gore Recital Hall, the University of Delaware. JPG and PDF versions of the flyer are attached.  We encourage you and your students to attend, and ask that you help spread the word.  Hope to see you there!

Ms. Graves will be performing with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra under the direction of David Amado on Friday, March 24th at the Grand Opera House and Sunday, March 26th at Dover High School.  Student tickets ($10) are still available for both performances.


Recognized worldwide as one of today’s most exciting vocal stars, Denyce Graves continues to gather unparalleled popular and critical acclaim in performances on four continents. USA Today identifies her as “an operatic superstar of the 21st Century,” and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution exclaims, “if the human voice has the power to move you, you will be touched by Denyce Graves.”

The combination of her expressive, rich vocalism, elegant stage presence, and exciting theatrical abilities allows her to pursue a wide breadth of operatic portrayals and to delight audiences in concert and recital appearances. Denyce Graves has become particularly well-known to operatic audiences for her portrayals of the title roles in Carmen and Samson et Dalila. These signature roles have brought Ms. Graves to all the major Opera Houses of the world, and she has made numerous  recordings. Among the many awards she has received is the Marian Anderson Award, presented to her personally by Miss Anderson.

Ms. Graves’s dedication to the singers of the next generation continues to be an important part of her career and recently she joined the voice faculty of the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. In addition to her session with Dover High School Students following the concert, during her time in Delaware, she will give a Master Class on Saturday, February 25, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., at Gore Recital Hall, Roselle Center for the Arts, University of Delaware, which is open to the public at no charge.
