Wegmans…the Musical 2.0 is coming to the ARHS auditorium June 7 and 8 @7pm. 61 students are part of this original show about twin brothers managing competing supermarkets in Northborough, a lost elderly man living at Avalon apartments and the real-life event of a proposal in the store. This updated show was written by the 2012 Advanced Drama show, adding a live all-student pit band. Wegmans is providing props for the show where food and theatre collide.

Recently, the music department participated in a 3-day tour of NYC with 67 of our music students. The choir, band and orchestra performed in NYC at two very impressive venues: St. John the Divine Cathedral and St. Paul the Apostle Church. The trips activities were socially and musically educational and our students represented our community well in NYC.
Some of the highlights of the trip included: our performances, attending School of Rock the Musical, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square and Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
All four of the Algonquin Instrumental groups: Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra will be performing in the MICCA Gold Medal Showcase at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA. These groups were invited to attend this performance based on their superior ratings at the MICCA Festival on March 24.
Please join us on Sunday April 8 at Mechanics Hall to celebrate the accomplishments of our fine musicians. The Algonquin groups are scheduled to perform at 4pm. The organizers of the event noted the Showcase may run ahead of schedule and there is the potential for the Algonquin time slot to begin at 3:30pm- so get there early to grab a seat. Admission is free!!
