On October 15th, the GNGHS Band and our newly formed Color Guard traveled to Gillette Stadium to perform at University of Massachusetts Amherst’s 2016 BandDay!  Thousands of high school band students come from Pennsylvania to Maine in order to work with the famous UMASS Band.

It’s very important for our students to take part in workshops with college music departments so that they know what to expect when they leave high school.  Students FILLED Gillette stadium at halftime in a performance of songs from Grease, specially arranged for this event by the Mass students.

Following the game, after the fans all left, we were treated to a very special concert by UMass.  Many thanks to our dedicated chaperones, Principal Finn, Superintendent King and our school board for their support of this wonderful, enriching experience!

Check out the video! If you look closely, you can see the color guard on the jumbotron!
