Coming soon….

Coming soon, to a high school theater near you (November 30, December 1, and December 2 at 7pm):

Legally Blonde the musical! It’s a story of girl meets boy and gets dumped.  She attempts to win him back but, along the way, realizes her worth and her own ambitions far exceed his evaluation of her.  She ends up with the self-confidence and grit to earn a law degree from Harvard and, of course, find true love since this IS a musical.

First Gig of the Year!

Students from Mr. Eric Vincent’s Jazz Improv class had their first “gig” of the year on Monday, October 2 at the Wachusett Country Club in West Boylston. They performed an hour of jazz music at the St. Rose of Lima charity golf tournament. The annual event raises money for youth services within the local community, and it provides an opportunity for our music students to put what they do in the classroom to use in a real world setting. IMG_3969

Students involved were:

Ethan Cardillo, gr 10, guitar

Mateo Oyola, gr 10, bari sax

Justin Moyer, gr 11, trumpet

Ahren Shreeve, gr 12, guitar

Maya Sagarin, gr 11, trombone

Pep Band Performances!

The ARHS Pep Band, under the direction of Ms. Amy Collins and Mr. Eric Vincent, paraded down the streets of Northborough on September 17 in the Applefest Parade. The students endured some unseasonable hot temperatures, but were able to “Push It” all the way to the end. You can see the Pep Band again, parading down Main Street in Southborough for the Heritage Day Parade on October 9th and at the Homecoming Football game on Friday, October 13th. Go T-Hawks!
