Jazz band to play at Barnes & Noble

HUDSON – The Alvirne High School Jazz Band will perform at Barnes & Noble in Nashua on Wednesday from 6-7:30 p.m. as part of a book fair fundraiser for the jazz band’s upcoming trip to Germany.

For the third time in the past decade, the jazz band has been invited to conduct a concert tour through Germany over February vacation. This opportunity has developed as part of an exchange relationship that Alvirne has with a German high school, the Carl-Orff Gymnasium in Unterschleissheim, a town of 30,000 just outside of Munich.

The Alvirne High School Jazz Band is inviting holiday shoppers to the Nashua Barnes & Noble to stop by and pick up that special book, DVD, CD or enjoy the food court. When shoppers present a Barnes & Noble Bookfair voucher, which is good for the entire day, a portion of the purchase will be donated to the AHS Jazz Band as part of their fundraising efforts.

Book fair vouchers can be downloaded at www.ahsmusic. org. For more information, call Gerry Bastien at 886-1265.
