Wow! What a show! What a success! Despite the rainy weather, the HHS auditorium was filled with an audience who cheered on our performers. Check out the program below! The alumni talent show was a success! Thank you to our friends, family, and school administrators who supported this endeavor. We were so impressed with the quality of the performances, which was kind of the point to this show. Music and the arts are so important to our society. Music brings us together. The student technicians helping to run the show were amazingly adept, too! Lets make this an annual event and even bigger next year! Photos and video to come!
Hi! I'm Pete Conrad. That's me circa 1985 in my snazzy HHS band uniform. I spent four years in the A-Wing, whether in the graphic arts room, arts rooms, chorus room, or band room. I owe a lot to the HHS arts program, especially band director Mr. Leary, Chorus director Mrs. Rogers, and graphic arts teacher Mr. Olszak. The skills they taught me transferred to a very successful career as an author of five books (so far). I knew that many band members and talent show entertainers still played their instruments, sang or still engaged in the arts. I thought it would be great to see them all on stage again, together, performing for a worthwhile cause. So, I got with Dean Tsioropoulos, the new HHS band director, and told him of this idea of having HHS alumni recreate their talent show performances as a band fundraiser. He loved the idea and brought it to the HHS administration. They loved the idea, too, and here we are today - putting on a show!
So far, we have over a dozen acts from the 1970s to the 2000s that range from pop and punk bands to singers and soloists. And we've got a couple of surprises up our sleeve, too! If you would like to perform and are a HHS alumni (up to class of 2016), contact us and tell us you're in! We have a very limited number of open slots.
Please share this page with as many people as you can. My goal is to sell out this must-see show. Use the PayPal buttons above to either buy a ticket or make a donation if you can't make it to the show. I am personally making up any PayPal fees, if incurred, so that 100% of all ticket sales and donations benefit the HHS Band.
Thank you so much!
