The store for the jackets has closed.  Please allow about three weeks of processing time.

If you have not already done so, please register your student for our trip to Disney next year.  We want to get the ball rolling on logistics / fundraisers etc.

Memorial Day:
A reminder of our obligation for the Memorial Day ceremonies in Lancaster and Stow, Monday May 28.  This is a performance for all of our concert band and jazz band wind players.  Logistics for that will come out closer to the event.  But, please plan on having 7:30 am – ~3:30 pm booked for our performances.

Another performance date to have on your calendars is Sunday, June 10.  This is graduation.  This performance is for all concert band / jazz band wind players.  Seniors have the option to perform if they wish.  Times for this performance are roughly, 9:00 am – 3 pm.

Here are some hand outs from our presentation. The information is:

Page 1 and 2, – Information about Trip insurance
Page 3 – Handy sheet to log into the trip website
Page 5-20 – Sample itinerary for the trip. Some logistics may change when we hear back from Disney about performance times / spaces.

As a reminder, we want to register our students as soon as possible so that we can get numbers for Disney as well as to not get too backed up on payment plans. We are in the process of trying to get 1 or 2 fundraisers before the end of the school year. We will keep you updated on that.

Good afternoon instrumental parents,

At the brink of break, We would like to inform you that we will be planning a music department performance trip next February break to…

Walt Disney World!

Please join us for an information session on Monday, April 23rd in the Band Room at 6:30 PM.

We have been working diligently to select a big trip that we felt would be musically beneficial for our students.

On this Disney trip, students in both concert band and choir will get the opportunity to perform at a venue in Disney World as well as participate in a 3-hour workshop with a Disney music studio professional who will guide students in sight-reading and performance exercises and techniques, culminating in a Nashoba recording of Disney music paired with a scene from a Disney music. Along with our performances, Disney is known for its numerous formal and informal music performances throughout the parks. We hope students will experience Disney world through the lens of music throughout our adventure!

As this is intended to be a performance field trip, we hope to have close to 100% participation. We plan to offer numerous opportunities for fundraising at the end of this year and beginning of next and look forward to working with you in preparing for this trip.

Again, please join us for an INFORMATION SESSION on Monday, April 23rd at 6:30 PM in the Band Room. A representative from the travel company we will be working with will be there to answer questions regarding travel, price, payments, itinerary, workshops, etc.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to let us know.
We are excited that we will be offering this trip next year and hope you are excited for this opportunity for your child as well! (Sorry parents of seniors!)

On May 6, 2018 at 3pm, join us for a musical journey through Europe and North America, as we perform Classic Originals for Band by some of the world’s best known composers.
