ABRHS Band Celebrates 60 Years with Exhibit at Acton Memorial Library

A new exhibit titled 60 Years of Pride and Excellence celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School Band. This exhibition presents the history (1958-2018) of the ABRHS Band through photographs, band uniforms, and sheet music. “The best band in the land” has shared their camaraderie and love of music at football games, parades, competitions, and concerts for 60 years.

There are many ways to enjoy this exhibit. Search for familiar faces in the photographs. Flip through the sheet music of the many and varied songs played by the band. Recall wearing the band uniforms on display. Share your memories of the band in the guest book. Admire the first band director's uniform, also on display, that was worn by Constantine Limberakis and George Revelas in the 1960's. 

The exhibit was developed by current ABRHS students working with parents of students and parents of alumni. Photographs were primarily sourced from yearbooks (Torch) from the Genealogy Collection at the Acton Memorial Library, the Jenks Library at the Acton Historical Society, and the historical collection at the Sargent Memorial Library in Boxborough. Other items were obtained from the Acton Historical Society and ABRHS Music Department.

The exhibit will be on display at the Acton Memorial Library through October 31.
