Northborough’s big annual community event is Applefest. This year, it takes place Friday, September 19 – Sunday, September 21. (Scroll down for their list of official events.)

I don’t cover festivals in most communities. But our high school’s strong ties to Applefest make this festival an exception.

One example of those ties is the concert on the first night. The school will host the 3rd annual New England Harmony Brigade at ARHS concert 6:00 pm on Friday, September 19. (It’s not on the list of official Applefest activities, but is timed to be part of it.)

The concert features the 100 man Harmony Brigade Chorus and Algonquin choral students from ARHS’ Chamber, Camerata and A-Gents Choral groups. You can pre-purchase tickets through NSMA by clicking here. Tickets are $15 or $10 for students 18 and under.
