Band Bulletin #15: 11/18-11/24

This week is a short week, but there is some important information to go over. We will be preparing for the Brecksville Holiday Parade on Sunday, November 25th. THIS IS A REQUIRED PERFORMANCE FOR ALL MARCHING BAND STUDENTS. Call time is 2:30pm in FULL UNIFORM. YES, we will be going outside during class so students must prepare for the weather. That means we will also assume our marching band rehearsal and lunch schedule on Monday and Tuesday. ALL STUDENTS WILL REPORT TO BAND 6TH PERIOD THIS WEEK. As a reminder for lunches:

  • JUNIOR and SENIOR Symphonic Band members must eat lunch in the band room 5th period.
  • ALL OTHER STUDENTS must follow their schedules as written.

CONGRATULATIONS to Emma Sak and Jocelyn Trout who gave outstanding performances with the BGSU Honor Bands this weekend!

CONGRATULATIONS also to the following students on their acceptance into the Ohio State University Honor Band: Parker Lewis, Nicole Ortenzi, Zach Ravagnani, Oliver Sah, Kevin Williams, and Jacob Zywiec. Honor bands are an outstanding opportunity for students to be rewarded for musical achievement, while at the same time provide enriching opportunities that serve as an extension of the classroom.

Be sure to tune in to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to catch Nicole Ortenzi and Zach Ravagnani perform with the Great American Marching Band. BBHHS will also be represented by Rashad Lawrence in The Ohio State University Marching Band, who is also marching in the parade. GO BEES!!!

The official posting has gone out for an Indoor Drumline instructor. It is our hope to continue this opportunity for students. Thank you for your patience!

Congratulations to Garret Paciorek for being selected from band for the Music Department Student of the Month. Garret suffered an injury at the beginning of marching season, but continued to participate in rehearsals/performances with an outstanding attitude. By the end of the season he was marching on the field. His resilience and attitude are much appreciated!
