Concert Wrap up / Week of Dec-21

I want to begin by thanking everyone who attended out concert on Friday.  The kids have been working tremendously hard to put on that performance and I believe that it really showed.  I am certainly really proud of all of their work so far.

That being said, we never really rest here in the music department.  We are already gearing up for our choir concert tomorrow night, as well as the concert band getting ready for our concert for the council on aging this Wednesday.


Council on Aging Concert
Concert band only.
This Wednesday, at 11 am our concert band and concert choirs will be holding a concert for our three councils on aging. We have invited these members of our community to NRHS for a special concert this Wednesday.


Jazz Band This Week
There will be no after school jazz band rehearsals this week.  We will continue after vacation as we prepare for our March 1st competition at Nipmuc HS.

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday and break.
