Band Bulletin #20: 12/16-12/22

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone on an outstanding Holiday Band Concert! We are very fortunate to have so many talented students in the BBHHS Band Program. Thank you for attending the concert and we look forward to preparing a new set of music for our Mid-Winter Concert when we return from break. Speaking of break, this will be the last Band Bulletin of 2018. The next Band Bulletin will be posted the week of January 7th. We hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with plenty of joy and family!

MIDTERM EXAM

The Midterm Exam for all concert bands(5th and 6th periods) and Jazz Ensemble is scheduled for Thursday, December 20th. The Symphonic Bands, Concert Winds, and Jazz Ensemble will have the option of a digital exam. Students in the Symphonic Bands and Concert Winds must complete the digital exam BEFORE the beginning of their assigned exam time. Students that do not complete the exam by that time must report to their exam time to complete the exam in person. Failure to complete the midterm digitally by the exam time OR report to the scheduled midterm exam time to complete the exam in person will result in a ZERO for the midterm.

You can access the Midterm HERE.

ALL WIND ENSEMBLE MEMBERS ARE TO REPORT FOR THE SCHEDULED 6TH PERIOD EXAM. The midterm exam will be based on ensemble sight reading and rehearsal etiquette.
