Dear Niskayuna Families,

The Music Department is thrilled to announce that live student concerts will be returning to our schools this year with in-person audiences. Consistent with protocols we need to follow in schools this year, we have a health and safety plan for student musical performances:

Please note the following:

  • Concerts will take place in the Niskayuna High School Auditorium.
  • The audience will be limited to 2 guests per student. Students will be given 2 tickets in advance to share with family members who will be in attendance.
  • Guests will be greeted at the door and given a badge in order to enter the auditorium.
  • A roster of students and the number of guests in attendance will be kept for contact tracing purposes.

We appreciate your help and cooperation as we work to bring live, in-person performances back to our schools. Our student-musicians are working hard and we can’t wait for them to perform again! All concerts are listed on the school calendar, which can be found on the district website and in ParentSquare.
