Announcements

Watch the the Live Stream production of
The Addams Family Musical - School Edition
this weekend May 14 & 15th
Cost is $16.50
see link below
Please note...
Tickets are being sold to families first due the current capacity limits of 100 people indoors.  When purchasing tickets you will be able to reserve your seats in the auditorium by selecting the available seats in either the center, left, or right sections.

Seats have been grouped together in groups of 5 with six feet of distance between each grouping/family per MA state guidelines.  If any family is in need of wheelchair accessible seating, please contact Mr. Chatham so that we can accommodate you.

Tickets will be $10 for students/seniors/faculty, $15 for adults/general admission, and $15 for a streaming pass.  
Tickets can then be printed at home or displayed on your phone to be scanned at the entrance to the auditorium.  Tickets are not being sold at the door this year due to MA state guidelines for contactless ticketing.  Also, just to make you aware that the online platform, BookTix, does charge a processing fee of $1.50 per ticket.  We tried to work around this but unfortunately we were not able to absorb the fee.

Please be aware that masks must be worn by all audience members during all performances, maintain social distancing, and hand sanitizing stations will be available.

concerts, the new choral risers, band uniform maintenance, music events & festivals, town parades
 and group trips!  We also offer 2 scholarships to our graduating seniors .

The best part about our additional TBD fundraisers is that every student in the music department that fundraises has "accounts" maintained by the Friends of Music. 
We get 40% profit from MeadowBrook  and 2/3 of that is earmarked towards future trips to reduce the overall cost. 
Funds from the accounts will be automatically applied to the final payment balance and /or  parents will get a refund check. 

 All other fundraisers from HFOM (concert raffles, car decals, "H" ornament, ) goes into the HFOM general fund to help reduce the cost of music trips, equipment and supplies for the music department. 
 

Concert Attire Swap Shop

For parents who have children who grow very fast and do not want to throw away the clothing.
This is aimed at concert attire that may only be used a couple of times a year for music students.
 Please add any contact information that you feel comfortable with.
 This will also be shared with parents/guardians of elementary music students. 
Some of us may benefit from the use of the concert clothing - which can cost as much as $50-70 just for one year of performances!  Please contact Heather Dupuis for details - htbkrdupuis@hotmail.com
