WINDHAM (WGME) -- They are rocking the holidays at Windham High School.
A Grammy nominated music educator and the drummer from the band, Boston are just two of the talented teachers at Windham High School who got together for a faculty band performance during Ugly Sweater Day today.
They call themselves, Cousin Itt and for a few years now, they've been taking the stage to kick off holiday vacation for the students and show them that teachers can let loose too.
Chorale Director Richard Nickerson is one of ten Grammy finalists for Music Educator of the Year.
The other teachers have impressive music credentials, too.
“And as a music teacher, ironically I don't get to play much anymore, so it's great that we can get together and just kind of jam out," says Richard Nickerson
The band was backed by the Windham Chamber Singers and some elementary chorus students.
