THIS YEAR’s FUNDRAISER is different than in the past. The choir and theater organization is joining us on our citrus sale and we are joining them on their butter braid sale. The cookie dough we sold last year will be done in the late winter/early spring.

Money should be collected at the time of sale and needs to be handed in by FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH.  Orders will be picked up in the band room on that day or you can drop them off at 1815 Oak Avenue on or before the 10th.

Delivery will occur the week of December 4th, more details about pick-up will be sent out after the orders have been submitted and processed.

Students earn 40% of their individual sales as profit to be deposited into their EFC accounts. This credit can be used for band trips, marching band camp, instrument rental, the end-of-year band banquet, uniform fees, or lessons (at GBN) to name a few. If you have more than one student in the music program, funds can be transferred to the younger sibling as long as they either overlap or come into the program the following school year after the previous student graduates.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Paige Brooks at 860-912-2486 or by email.

Thank you!

The GBN Band is excited to announce our 2018 band trip, A Tour of Wisconsin Universities!  This year’s trip will be a tour of Wisconsin universities as well as various sightseeing venues.  The trip will take place over the first 3 days of spring break and will include a wide variety of activities including clinics with college band directors, campus tours of three universities, museum visits and fun times at the Kalahari Waterpark.  This trip is open to ALL band members.  We will be putting together a “trip band” that will be playing for the clinics at the colleges so everyone is eligible to go along!   Attached is an overview of the trip and the expenses.


There is an informational meeting at 5pm on Monday, September 25th in the band room for all parents and students who are interested in going on the trip.  This will be an opportunity for you to hear from our tour coordinator and ask questions.  Please plan to attend this meeting and hear about the exciting things we have planned.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday night!

Mr. Chapman and Mr. Zweibel
