Ticket information is below.

We are VERY excited that we have funding available this year to provide a series of sectionals with guest artists for all of our concert bands! Beginning this week, we will have guest artists coming to work with students on Tuesdays and Thursdays during our concert band periods. In additional to BBHHS directors, we are also excited to welcome:

Mrs. Ellen Backman – Flute
Mrs. Jenny Magistrelli – Clarinet
Mr. Jake Ciulla – Trumpet

These sectionals will focus on basic fundamentals and technique building on each instrument, as well as refining our literature for the March concert.
