christmas-holly-clip-art-rightNPHS Band Annual Caroling Fundraiser

Every year, students from the NPHS Band perform throughout the community of Newbury Park spreading holiday cheer and collecting donations that support our ability to buy instruments, music, and provide valuable instrument coaches throughout the year.

Hollywood Storage Santa Days – December 11th, 17th, and 18th

The generous folks at Hollywood Storage have agreed to make a substantial donation to the NPHS Band program in exchange for our students providing some holiday atmosphere during their “Santa Days” event.  Students will perform in small groups outside Hollywood Storage for 30 minute sets that start at 10:30, 12:30, 2:30, and 4:30.  Each band student is requested to volunteer for at least one of those shifts.  Each shift is only 30 minutes and you can do as many as you would like!
