WATER MUSIC – Sunday @ 4pm
Water is not only necessary for our survival, it also shapes and defines our culture and traditions.
“Water Music” brings together two great choirs whose community is shaped by the Hudson River:
the Nyack High School Mixed Chorus and the Grace Church Choir.  Led by Drucilla Pluhowski and Brandon Beachamp, respectively,
the two choirs share a passion for choral music as a means to transform lives and build community.
The two choirs present a program that explores our relationship to the life-giving and sustaining element of water, including Eric Whitacre’s hauntingly beautiful “Water Night.”

Middle School Cheese Cake Sale!!

We have begun a cheesecake fundraiser to help fund our 8th grade trip to Music in the Parks in May! Fundraising packets are available in the band room for any student who has not yet received one.
The fundraiser will run until October 28th. The sale includes cheesecakes, cookies, and items from the online store. Students may sell these items door to door only if supervised. This fundraiser will help lower the cost of our Music in the Parks trip. All forms with payment are due on October 28th. Checks must be made out to MusicWorks.
Prize incentives begin after students have sold at least ten items. More items sold means better incentives. After a certain amount of items sold, students are entered into a raffle for larger prizes.
The items that students have sold will be delivered to the high school the week of November 23rd. If you do not plan on delivering your items immediately, please clear space in your refrigerator or freezer to store them. Please arrange to pick them up from the high school.
Online orders may be placed by friends or family not living nearby by visiting www.ashleyfarmsinc.com and entering the code NMSMF15. Each student must register and create a password before they can sell items online.
If you have any additional questions about the fundraiser, please feel free to email Mr. Lucas
