About the Event:

Nerstrand School's first Community Celebration took place fifteen years ago when Larry Long spent a week in residency at the school. The students and staff of Nerstrand have carried out celebrations every year since the first, earning them the notoriety of holding the longest continuous EWCS celebration on record! Following the elders' interviews, the writing and rehearsal of the elders' songs become a major part of the school's music curriculum until the staging of the EWCS celebration each year. The work of student artists decorate the gymnasium and the evening starts off with a performance by the Nerstrand Community Band, comprised of current 5th graders, school alums, parents, and community members. It will be standing room only when the curtain goes up on Thursday, April 25th at 6:45 p.m. in the Nerstrand School gymnasium.
