Just to set the record straight: the Gonzaga Music Ensembles were awarded the Heritage Festival Sweepstakes in 2008 and again in 2010. AND in 2008 they also won the Spirit of the Festival award, Most Outstanding Vocal group and were invited to sing at Carnegie Hall. So, the tradition of excellence continues!

Gonzaga groups and the district band did amazing jobs! As a previous student who travelled on both trips I can honestly say that the students stepped up to the plate once again! Congrats guys! You deserve it! Vaughan is truly amazing at his job, the students are lucky to have him! As for the article stating that the previous two trips did not claim a sweepstakes trophy, that's incorrect. Gonzaga claimed the best overall school sweepstakes each time we attended the Heritage Music Festival in New York City.

No surprise here. Doug is golden wherever he teaches.
