Information on the annual alumni Pachelbel's Canon performance

December 16, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians and Central Square Alumni,

It is that time of year again when our amazing alumni come together to take part in a longstanding Central Square tradition, the “Pachelbel's Canon” performance. Nothing kicks off the holidays better than old friends coming back to Paul V. Moore High School to join in this wonderful event each year. The Pandemic and associated NYSDOH restrictions require us to be creative to make sure this special performance can still go on. Below is a message from Music Department Coordinator, Ron Haldeman.

Central Square Music Department alumni, along with parents, faculty and staff who play instruments are invited to participate in this year's "Pachelbel's Canon" livestream performance that will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 22 in the Paul V. Moore High School auditorium. Alumni will need to arrive at 10:30 a.m. and will need to enter the building through the front of the building entrance and must be masked while in the building. You will then go directly to the auditorium to prepare for the performance. You will only be able to unmask when it is time to perform in the auditorium. There will be no live audience for this performance. This will be a livestream only event. Please let us know that you plan to attend and participate and what instrument you will be playing so that we can stage everyone ahead of time. We can also provide music ahead of time for you upon request. For additional information, to secure music, or for answers to questions, contact Ron Haldeman or Mark Woods:,

Come and be a part of this amazing "surround sound" experience in the newly renovated auditorium. We look forward to seeing you there!
