MICCA Madness...

Dear Whalers,
This weekend, as March Madness whittles down the best basketball teams in the NCAA, the Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors' Association (MICCA) will hold their annual Concert Festival to whittle down the best concert ensembles in the state of Massachusetts.  We have been focused on this performance for several  months now, and as you know, we are performing on Saturday, April 2, at Bellingham High School.  (For Parents who would like to attend, please see attachments at the bottom of this email.)

This event is the culmination of months of hard work, and every year we have put on a solid performance any this event.

Our schedule for the day is as follows:

6:45am  Band room opens at NBHS
7:00am  Downbeat for warm-up and rehearsal
8:00am  Pack-up and load busses
8:15am  Depart NBHS for Bellingham High School
9:15am  Arrive at Bellingham High School and unload
9:30am  Warm-up time
10:00am  Perform for adjudication
10:30am  Clinic (parents welcome!!)
11:00am  Pictures, then listen to other groups
12:30pm  Awards
1:30pm  Depart Bellingham HS
2:30pm  Return to NBHS/Dismissal

Also attached below is a letter that is coming home with students tonight explaining all about the MICCA Concert Festival and its importance.  I hope you'll take the time to read it.

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

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
