    Amherst Spring Concert

    The Amherst Bands Spring Concert is scheduled for Thursday, May 5th at 7PM at the high school.  Tickets are $2 each and will be sold at the door.  This is going to be another awesome concert!.  It is Movie themes for the night with an addition of a vocal duet between Cameron Howell and Lexi Davila singing "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge.  The Grande Finale will be a presentation of a video montage of the Pirates of the Caribbean while the Wind Ensemble scores the video that you will watch on the big screen!

    Marching Band Deposit

    The Marching Band deposit for the 2016-17 school year of $100 is due by Friday, May 6th.  As stated in the "Welcome to the Band" letter, this payment will A) reserve your spot on the field so the staff can begin designing the shows and B) sets the cost of the Disney trip.  You may begin turning deposits in now!  Don't wait until the last minute.  See Mr. Barbaro if you have any questions.

    Disney Chaperone

    We are now looking for parents that are interested in chaperoning the Disney trip next spring.  Parents pay the same price as the students and at the same payment schedule.  This means that if you are picked to attend, you will need to pay your $100 deposit by May 6th as well.  The process to pick the team to travel can be complex.  We try to be fair to everyone.  Preference is sometimes given to parents of older students as freshman and sophomore students have a chance to attend again in 2 years.  We also like to take some veteran chaperones as it helps with the leadership within the chaperone staff. BUT, that does not mean that parents of younger students don't get picked.  So if you are interested, please do try.   All overnight chaperones for school trips are required to have a volunteer application on file with the Amherst Schools AND MUST also have a background check on file by January of next year.  If you are interested in attending next spring with the band, please email Mr. Barbaro.  He will then publish the approved list about a week before the due date so you may pay your deposit.  Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  Thanks!

    List of current chaperones interested in Florida 2017:
    We will be in need of about 9 Female and 7 Male chaperones at the most.

    Jennifer Amon, Lynette Gilles, Crystal Hess, Bruce and Tammy Hammond, Lisa MacLean, Amy Rakar, Jean Maxwell, Bethany Matos

    A note for all parents wanting to Chaperone for the Amherst Program

    There is a new online application process for Chaperoning for the Amherst Schools.  We will require all 2015 chaperones to fill out an application online even if you have had one from the past.  Having it done online will make it accessible to all administration, will be easier to track expiration dates, and will eliminate the need for hand to hand passing along with photocopying extras.    At this time, you WILL NOT need a background check unless it is an overnight stay.    This is for all chaperones traveling on the buses for games and competitions.  You can find the page by clicking on the link below.  If you are a full time volunteer coach of the band, you may also click below to find your online application

    You may find the application here.
