WELCOME ORCHESTRA AND BAND PARENTS!
We hope your student is off to a good start this school year, and enjoying playing with their music ensemble! TIMB is the volunteer parent organization that supports instrumental music at Northwood: orchestras, bands, guitar, jazz, and marching band. For more photos/videos and information: visit our website, view our Flickr account, and subscribe to our YouTube channel and Instagram @NorthwoodInstrumental!
FALL CONCERTS ARE TAKING PLACE NEXT WEEK!
- All orchestras: Saturday, October 15, 1:00pm in the NHS theater
- All wind bands: Saturday, October 15, 3:00pm in the NHS theater
Students have been instructed on appropriate concert attire by their instructors. Please see Concert Attire Do’s and Dont’s for a complete description, with photos.
CONCERT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We need a few volunteers to take tickets, hand out programs, and direct people to seats at both concerts. Please sign up here if you are able to help. You will receive free admission, we will train you, and you will be able to watch your child’s performance, thank you!
Make your KMA donation by October 9th to ensure you receive ALL your benefits (free concert tickets, program recognition, early entry to concerts) in time for the Fall Concerts on October 15th. Read more about KMA HERE, and donate online today!
Note that KMA supports ALL instrumental music (orchestras, bands, jazz, chamber, guitar ensemble). Marching Band donations collected earlier this year support marching band expenses (food, uniforms, trucks, show design and music, coaching, etc.).
TICKET VOUCHERS FOR CONCERTS
If you donated $125+ to Keep Music Alive (KMA), your student will be given ticket vouchers next week. Vouchers can be exchanged at the concert for tickets. CHARTER OAK donors may be seated 15 minutes prior to concert (12:45pm or 2:45pm on Saturday, 10/15).
Note that Marching Band donations collected earlier this year support marching band expenses and do not count towards KMA, which supports ALL instrumental music.
