Dear Whalers,
This weekend brings our NBHS Band Trip to New York City to see Les Miserables on Broadway. This is sure to be a very exciting experience for everyone, and with warm weather in the forecast it should be a great day for everyone.

Over the last few weeks, I've been trying to catch up on communication with everyone, but I still have several emails and phone calls to return.  In the mean time, our itinerary is below:

6:15am    Report to New Bedford High School
6:30am    Depart NBHS for NYC
TBD         rest stop en route
10:30am  Arrive NYC
11:00am  Meet-the-Artist Workshop at Ripley Grier Studios
12:15pm  Walk to Imperial Theater (students may buy a snack for students at select fast-food locations along the walk)
2:00pm    Performance of Les Miserables
5:15pm    Dinner at Hard Rock Cafe
6:15pm    Time in Chaperone Groups in Times Square
7:15pm    Board the bus and return to NBHS
11:15pm  Arrive at NBHS and Students dismissed

Here are some other reminders for the day:
  1. You may bring a pillow for the bus ride and food for breakfast on the ride down.  
  2. Please do NOT bring any devices with loud speakers for the bus ride.
  3. If anyone still owns DVDs, we could use a couple of movies to watch on the ride.  (must be appropriate for all ages)
  4. We will be walking a lot on Saturday.  Please wear comfortable shoes.
  5. All students and chaperones should complete the online lunch order and group request form located at the top of this email. (Also available by clicking here.)
Thank you all for a great year so far.  I am very much looking forward to out trip. As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
