Kicking off a great year...

Dear Whalers,

2015 was a great year to be a Whaler.  Now that the year has drawn to a close, I hope you have all taken some time to relax and enjoy the Holidays with your family and friends.  We had a lot to celebrate in 2015, and I'm sure that 2016 will be just as spectacular.  With that in mind, here is some information about our first performance of the year: the New Bedford Mayoral Inauguration on Monday, January 4, 2016.

There will not be a weekly sheet, but here are the details for Monday night:

1) Where/When: The event itself will be held at the Zeiterion Theater in downtown New Bedford 
(684 Purchase Street) at 7pm.  Student are asked to stay through after school in order to allow time to dress, rehearse, and board the bus to the Zeiterion in time for our sound-check at 5:45pm.  The event should conclude around 9pm and then students will return to the high school to change and be dismissed around 10pm.

2) What to Wear: We will be performing in standard Marching Band Uniforms.  Don't forget black t-shirts and socks!

Since we will have everyone out so late on the first day back to school, we will also be cancelling rehearsal for Tuesday night January 5.  Rehearsal on Thursday, January 7 will run from 5:30-7:30pm.

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
