Dear Alumni,

This yearís 2009 Popís Concert at Stevens High School will be featuring an Alumni Band. We would

be honored if you joined this ensemble as our records indicate you were involved with the band

during your tenure at Stevens High School. This event is being supported by the Stevens High School

Alumni Association and organized entirely by former band members.


The concert will be on June 4th at 7:00 PM in Claremont, NH. It will be held at Stevens High School. We

will be holding 4 rehearsals on May 2nd, 16th, and 30th From 10:00AM-1:00PM at the high school. The

dress rehearsal will be June 3rd from 7:00PM-8:30PM. As many of you no longer are local to

Claremont, attendance is not mandatory at all rehearsals. We ask that you attend as many as you can!

We will require that you attend the final rehearsal. If you have extenuating circumstances and cannot

attend any rehearsal, contact Kevin De Rosa or Ashley LaFountain so we can accommodate you.

From talking with Band Alumni that are still local, we are confident that we will have a full band. We

will be having guest conductors including former band directors from Stevens.


We invite you to visit our facebook group called: ďSteven's High Alumni Music Department.Ē

The musical selection will not be difficult so that everyone can comfortably participate. As this letter

is coming to you late, we will need to know ASAP if you are willing to participate in this ensemble.

Please let us know no later then April 11th so that music can be mailed out Monday, April 20th. (A

much quicker response would be appreciated!!) This will give everyone 2 weeks to practice on their

own before the group gets together for the first time.


Please send your questions and replyís to Kevin (603-477-4831) or Ashley (603-558-3589) by phone

or preferably email: [email protected] You can also mail this form to: Kevin De Rosa, 63

W. Terrace St, Claremont, NH, 03743.
