Congratulations Wind Ensemble!

Please help congratulate members of our EAHS Wind Ensemble on a successful winter concert held this past Saturday!

Thank you, Mrs. Franklin!

A huge thank you to Mrs. Franklin for coordinating our annual fruit sale this past year! Our program sold over $25,000 worth of product! We could not do this without the time donated by many.


If you see Mrs. Franklin, please tell her thank you for helping to coordinate this sale!

Upcoming Events

Pit Orchestra Sign Ups - DUE DECEMBER 15

As we quickly approach winter break, it is time to start looking towards pit orchestra.


Pit Orchestra is the ensemble that plays all of the instrumental music during the musical. It is a wonderful group to be a part of that begins practicing in January and ends in March. In 2019, our pit orchestra received the Freddy for "outstanding performance by an orchestra." There is an expectation to practice your music outside of rehearsals. The more you put into the group, the more successful we will be.


If you are interested in the ensemble, please see the form found here. This form is due by Wednesday, December 15.


A copy of the tentative schedule can be found here.

Winter Orchestra Concert Dress Rehearsal

This EAHS orchestras will have their winter dress rehearsal on Thursday, December 16. The rehearsal will take place from 6 - 8p in the HS auditorium. Please arrive by 5:45pm so we can start promptly at 6pm.


To be early is to be on time...

County Band Interest Forms

Any students interested in applying to participate in the Northampton County Band, please take an interest form found on the instrumental library doors at the front of the room.


Forms are due by Friday, December 17. A rehearsal schedule can be found on each interest form.


Please see me with any questions regarding this great opportunity!

Christmas...and all that Jazz Information

The jazz band will be hosting our 2nd annual "Christmas...and all that Jazz" concert on Saturday, December 18. The event will begin at 7p in the EAHS instrumental music room.
