THE GIFT OF MUSICThroughout this pandemic, the Hamden Music Department has tried to keep making music - even from a distance. The following are some of the wonderful products of teacher creativity, student participation and musical talent. Please enjoy these until we can invite you back in for a live concert in the near future!
The HHS Marching Band learned their music....practiced their drills...followed their drum majors....and then didn't get to perform! Sadly, there were no competitions or football games for our band students to show their stuff. So, we put together this virtual show for your enjoyment. Kudos to Aaron Barkon, Kate Socha and all of the instructors, students and friends of the program that made this possible. See their VIRTUAL MARCHING BAND SHOW below:
