What's New

Band Parents - We need chaperones and uniform help during Band Camp!

During camp, the kids learn the music and the marching drill for the 2017 field show - and they have a grand time gelling as a world class group! It's also the time that they are fitted for their uniforms. We need many hands to ensure a safe and fun week for the students!

We're looking for chaperone and uniform help. Don't worry if you've never done it, Uniform and Chaperone Coordinators will be on hand to show you what needs to be done and answer questions. You don't need any special skills, and we'd love to have new volunteers. If you can only help for a few hours - we would love to have you!

Volunteer to help out - see the list of opportunities.

Parents - We need your help at the Car Wash!

The annual Fall Band, Chorus and Orchestra Car Wash fundraiser takes place Saturday, August 26. (Rain date August 27). We are looking for parent volunteers to supervise, drink coffee and provide a smile. Parent/Adult volunteers should have a current CORI to supervise students for a two hour shift.  If you are available, please respond with which shift you prefer by clicking on the link here: Volunteer to Supervise - have fun and drink coffee!

Students wash . . . Parents supervise!

Solar Eclipse Sunglasses

Unfortunately, we no longer have any Solar Eclipse Glasses to sell. But our lack of inventory doesn’t mean the fun stops. You can still join us on Leary Field at the AB High school starting at 2:30pm on Monday, August 21 for our Eclipse Viewing Event!

You can still watch the eclipse INDIRECTLY by making an easy DIY Eclipse Viewer. There are many examples on the web, here are a few:

Again, thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the field with the AB Colonials Marching Band.

Band Camp

This year's band camp is August 21 to August 25- everyday from 9am to 4:30 and 6 to 9pm. Monday dinner is provided. There is a party at NARA on Friday, 3-6.

Don't forget the Car Wash on Saturday!

Band Information

The packet of 2017-2018 Band Information is ready! This contains tons of important information about band camp, the 2017-2018 schedule, uniforms, ABFOM and much more. Please read it carefully and fill out the required forms. Many of the forms are due by July 15th so don't delay too long.

Family and Friends Sponsorship Program

A new and effective way for students to raise money is by acquiring sponsorships that can go directly toward the amount needed to be raised by the student. With a sponsorship via a friend or family member, 100% of the money goes toward the student account, and they can use the funds as needed. Read here for more information; find the forms on our Fundraising page.

The Instrument Link

Do you have a musical instrument or accessory that you want to sell, or are you are in the market for an instrument?  The Acton-Boxborough Friends of Music (ABFOM) has created a forum called The Instrument Link, for members of the Acton Boxborough community to buy and sell used musical instruments and related equipment.
