SEVERANCE HALL UPDATES

We have just FOUR rehearsals left until Concert Winds and Wind Ensemble perform at Severance Hall. Concert Winds perform at 7:00pm with Wind Ensemble to perform immediately following. We encourage those attending the performance to arrive with enough time to find parking and seats. As part of our performance, students are required to attend the 3 preceding performing groups. Call times for Sunday will be:

Concert Winds – 2:15pm
Wind Ensemble – 1:45pm (We will have a brief warm-up before loading buses)

We are permitted to eat in our home room at Severance Hall, so students are encouraged to eat a big lunch and bring snacks to carry them over until after the performance. Concert Winds students are required to stay through the Wind Ensemble performance. Students may be signed out following Wind Ensemble’s performance. Students riding the bus should plan to arrive back at BBHHS by 9:00pm.

TICKETS: Band Boosters have a very limited quantity of tickets left for the Concert Winds and Wind Ensemble at Severance Hall on Sunday, January 26th. Tickets MUST be purchased through the BBHHS Band Boosters for $10.00, and only a limited quantity is available. To purchase tickets you can send a check made payable to BBHHS Band Boosters and place it in the lock box outside the Band Office. Tickets will be sent home with your student within a week of receiving payment. More information available HERE.

MISSING RAINCOATS

We took inventory of our new raincoats following the Christmas Parade and found that TWO of the new raincoats are missing.  Please check at home, in cars, instrument lockers, and drum cases, and return any raincoats ASAP to the Uniform Room (NOT hallway racks).
