Music in the Parks is a day-long or two-day festival for student choral, orchestral, and band ensembles, held annually in 41 locations across the United States.

The Douglas MacArthur Elementary School Spotlight Singers received a Superior Rating and First Place in the Grades K-6 division.  The group was also awarded the Overall High in Grades K-6 Vocal!

In addition, Esprit de Corps is presented to students from a school who demonstrated proper social behavior as well as musical behavior/encouragement from arrival to awards presentation.  All schools are eligible for this award, but only one group, The Douglas MacArthur Spotlight Singers, received this trophy of honor.

Mrs. Jenny McAllister is the choir director.  Mrs. Melisa Garrity is the group’s choreographer.
