Band Bulletin #17: 12/2-12/8

We have only three weeks left until Winter Break, and just over a week until the BBHHS Bands Holiday Concert on December 13th. Next week’s bulletin will include final details for the concert. This is a required performance for all band students. We hope to see a full house to support the wonderful work our students have been putting in to prepare for this performance! Please also plan to attend our December Band Booster Meeting on Tuesday, December 4th at 7:00pm at BBHHS.

Congratulations to Jared Leuthaeuser and Joe Sarfi on their acceptance into the Ohio University Honor Band! We are so excited and proud to have so many students that have been recognized for honor bands this year. We’re sure there will be more to come!

MIDTERM EXAM

The Midterm Exam for all concert bands(5th and 6th periods) is scheduled for Thursday, December 20th. Students should plan to attend during their scheduled exam time. Mr. Rex and Mrs. Astey will be sharing details this week of  what each concert band should expect for their exam.

BRASS & WOODWIND CHOIRS

There have been some questions about the lack of Brass and Woodwind Choirs this year. Due to Midterm Exams being moved before Winter Break this year, we were not able to find alternate times when students could be released from class for the traditional Brass and Woodwind Choir performances. This information was shared with students at the beginning of concert season, but we wanted to publicly share this with parents and the community to keep them in the loop. Our hope is to plan ahead next year to bring chamber music back for the holiday season. Thank you for your understanding!
