Concert Band
Competition at Hopkinton high school, Saturday, April 1st. This is a required competition for our concert band students.

Due to the snowstorm, the Nashoba Symphonic Band’s ‘Love is in the Winds’ concert was rescheduled to Thursday, February 16th at Nashoba Regional High School’s auditorium beginning at 7pm.

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

(We will be leaving NRHS at 7:30 am that morning and returning around 11 am)

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.

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.
