October 5, 2016 – Everyone who has served in the United States Armed Forces will be honored Thursday evening by the Nevada Union High School Instrumental Music Program.

NU’s talented young musicians will play theme songs from the Armed Forces as part of their Ice Cream Social Concert from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, in the high school’s multi-purpose room.

Ice cream is all-you-can-eat, with a choice of toppings. The cost is $5 per person – a fun and inexpensive night out!

Students in the school’s symphonic, jazz and marching bands also will play swing dance classics and Stevie Wonder hits.

The students’ Ice Cream Social Concert is an important fundraiser that supports music in our public schools: Instrument repair, new instrument purchases, new music, choreography for the color guard, uniform replacement and travel to regional competitions all are paid for entirely by funds raised at this and other band events during the year.

The young musicians also are available to play for holiday parties and other private events.

Nevada Union is at 11761 Ridge Road, Grass Valley.
