IN-SCHOOL REHEARSALS/LUNCHES

  • All MARCHING BAND students will report to band 6th period.
  • SYMPHONIC BANDS – Ignore what your schedule says, and follow the schedule below:
    • Students scheduled for Symphonic Band 5th period (Section 1), will eat lunch 5th period and report to band 6th period.
    • Students scheduled for Symphonic Band 7th period (Section 2), will eat lunch 7th period and report to band 6th period.
  • Non-Marchers should report during their regularly scheduled band period.
  • Plan to go outside every day — which means having appropriate footwear!
    • If you do not wear athletic shoes to school, then you must bring a pair to change into for the band period (some students just keep an old pair in their band locker).
  • TARDINESS: Students will be given time at the beginning of rehearsal to get instruments out and report to their designated rehearsal areas. Since we have very little time during the school day it is IMPERATIVE that students follow the given times to be ready for rehearsal.
    • For outdoor rehearsals students will have a total of 12 minutes from the 5th period dismissal bell to be in Attendance Block at the stadium.
    • For indoor rehearsals, student will have 7 minutes from the 5th period dismissal bell to be in their assigned auditorium seats.

MEET THE BAND – 8/26

It was brought to our attention that an incorrect date for Meet the Band was listed on the BBHHS website page. Please be advised that the correct date is MONDAY, AUGUST 26th at 8:30pm, which is the date on the band website and included in the Summer Mailing. Students still report in SUMMER UNIFORM at 6:00pm for rehearsal, with the performance to follow at 8:30pm. We hope to see you all there!

DRUMLINE/FLAGLINE REHEARSALS

The Google calendar on the band website page has all the updated rehearsals for Drumline and Flagline. These additional rehearsals are required for all Drumline and Flagline members. Flagline will have their extra rehearsal every Thursday from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Drumline will have their extra rehearsal on either Tuesday or Wednesday from 6:00pm-9:00pm depending on which day Marching Band rehearsal is scheduled. If Marching Band rehearsal is on Tuesday, Drumline will be on Wednesday. If Marching Band rehearsal is on Wednesday, Drumline will be on Tuesday. Essentially, Drumline has rehearsal on Tuesdays AND Wednesdays during marching season, one being a sectional and one being full band.
