The time has come to announce our new, upcoming Halftime music!
WALK – RUN – FLY!
Opener – GONNA FLY NOW (Theme from “Rocky”)
Flag Feature – WALK THIS WAY (Aerosmith)
Closer – RUN AWAY (Sarah Burgess)
We have a special opportunity to perform “Run Away” with American singer/songwriter, and Ohio native, Sarah Burgess. Sarah was featured on the 6th season of American Idol, and currently performs both nationally and internationally. The song was written to help raise support and funds for CureDuchenne, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a disease which affects nearly 20,000 boys in the United States, and 300,000 worldwide.
Sarah will be performing with us on the field for this show! You will get to meet her soon.

We will post music online soon, and begin working on it next week!
Our first Home Game on Friday was a success! Even though the Bees did not come away with a victory, we were pleased that the Band put on very exciting and solid performances at both Pregame and Halftime. Keep up the good work, Students!
Jeff Mihalich has put together an outstanding promotional/recruiting video for folks to learn more about what the BBHHS Band Program has to offer. Please view the video at the link above (right under the slideshow). Thank you, Mr. Mihalich!

THIS WEEK: We focus on Le Regiment and the NRHS BAND FESTIVAL!
TUESDAY, 9/16 – Evening Rehearsal (6:00-8:45*)
WEDNESDAY, 9/17 – Flagline Practice (6pm-9pm)
THURSDAY, 9/18 – Percussion Rehearsal (6pm-9pm)
FRIDAY, 9/19 – Home FB vs. Olmsted Falls (CT – 5:45)
SATURDAY, 9/20 – NRHS BAND FESTIVAL (CT – 5:00)
Athletics – If you have an athletic event that day, and will be unable to make call time, you will be able to meet us at the festival before we perform. Please let us know in advance, so that we can make arrangements.
Excused Absences – Please note, to recover points for an excused absence from the festival, an additional activity will be required. While the actual performance experience cannot be made up, a large portion of the educational value of Band Festivals also comes from watching other bands. As such, we will ask you to complete an online assignment that involves viewing and analyzing videos of various Halftime shows. Please see Mrs. Astey for details.
Band… steady improvement is being made each week, and we haven’t yet reached our full potential… let’s keep working!
Dear Band Parents and Students –
Thank you to all for an exciting weekend! The band put on another great Halftime performance on Friday night at NRHS, and proudly represented BBHHS in Progressive Field at the Indians game on Saturday. Great work, Students!
Also – A big THANK YOU to Karen Horvath, who sorted and organized all of the Indians ticket orders.
It was great to see the energy and camaraderie of the band, and the numerous improvements that were made from last week. CONGRATS! If we can continually improve each week throughout the season, there is no limit to what this band can accomplish.
Be sure to have all Pregame music and Stand tunes in your flip folder… we need to get some things “polished” up… If you have lost any music, be sure to download and print from the Sheet Music Page.
