Music Banquet RSVP

Just as a reminder that our annual music banquet RSVP is due soon.
These were mailed home a couple of weeks ago (also attached here as well)
Remember it is $20 for a student within our performing groups, and $35 for all additional family members.  Our Friends of music has subsidized the amount of the tickets to try to make it affordable for all.
We hope that you can all attend.  This is a wonderful event to celebrate all of the hard work and dedication from our students throughout the year.

FOM Meeting minutes have been posted to the site.

Update on MICCA date

MICCA is the competition that we take part in every year that is a part of our Concert Band curriculum.  It is a way that our concert band can be heard and evaluated by top music educators in the country followed by a 30 minute clinic with one of those educators.

Our date and time this year is:

Saturday, April 1st
9:00 am Performance time
Hopkinton High School

This is a mandatory performance for our concert band.

We hope to see you there as it is open to the public and tickets can be bought at the door.
