This was a big weekend for the “busy bees” of the BBHHS Band:

  • ALL-STATE BAND – Congratulations to Chas Backman, Jasper Jones, Nick Mihalich, and Ava Traum on a fantastic performance with the 2017 All-State Band on Friday night!  They even got to meet composer John Mackey (pictured in cat-eye sweater below) after the concert.

  • MONSTERS GAME – The Pep Band, under the direction of Mr. Hanna, performed at the Lake Erie Monsters game on Friday night.  Great job spreading the Pep (and ketchup) in the arena!  Keep up the great work.

  • INDOOR DRUMLINE COMPETITION – The Indoor Drumline, under the leadership of Jonathan Monacelli, earned a SECOND PLACE FINISH in their first competition of the season!  They performed this Sunday at Olentangy High School near Columbus.  Congrats!
  • JACK WOLF ARTICLE – The website “flomarching.com” has published a really nice article on our very own Jack Wolf.  CLICK HERE to read the article… we are proud of you, Jack!
