American High School’s concert/dinner fundraiser scheduled March 21

From a press release from the American High School Band Parents Organization (AHS-BPO):

On March 21, American High School in Fremont is hosting its annual Pops Concert and Italian Dinner. The public is invited to enjoy a pasta dinner, followed by performances by American High School’s Choir, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Winter Percussion, and Winter Guard.

There will be a silent auction, with all proceeds benefitting the American High School Music Department.

The pasta dinner is prepared on premises by parent volunteers with thanks to American High’s Culinary Arts Department. The main course will be spaghetti — available in red or white vegetarian sauce, along with meatballs. Green salad, fruit salad, garlic bread and dessert will accompany dinner. A variety of hot and cold beverages will be served.

The evening’s main event will be the music performed by the award-winning musicians of American High School, whose selections will include “Hercules,” “Les Miserables,” and “Shrek.”  This fundraising event will help pay for the 70-plus member marching band’s new uniforms.

Although the Fremont Unified  School District supplies a classroom and the salary of American High School’s music and band instructor, Mr. Richard Wong. But all instruments, repairs, uniforms, supplies, travel expenses, and ancillary instruction are funded by donations.

Dinner starts at 6:15 p.m. American High School’s rotunda, at 36300 Fremont Blvd. The concert will start at 7:30. Admission is $10, general; students and seniors, $7; children 6 and under are free. AHS students with ASB sticker get in for $6. Please note: there is no separate admission for the concert only. No food will be served during the concert. Parking and event entrance are on the side street, Alder Avenue.
