Band Bulletin #22: 2/2-2/8

CONGRATULATIONS to our students that performed with the OMEA All-State Band and All-State Jazz Ensemble this weekend in Cincinnati! Both ensembles gave inspiring performances with world class conductors. Being selected to the OMEA All-State ensembles is the highest honor a band student can receive in Ohio. BBHHS was one of only two schools in the entire state that had representation in all four All-State ensembles(Band, Choir, Jazz, and Orchestra). We hope to have many students audition for these groups this Spring!

EXTRA PEP BAND – 2/5

Attention Pep Band Members! We have been asked to add an additional pep band performance for the girls Senior Night this Wednesday, February 5th. Originally there was a Tri-M event scheduled for this date, which is why a pep band was not. Please CLICK HERE to say whether or not you would be able to add this date to our calendar last minute. Thanks!

OMEA SOLO & ENSEMBLE

OMEA Solo & Ensemble is Saturday, February 15th. All students are responsible for their own transportation to North Ridgeville High School. All ensembles MUST schedule a time to rehearse with Mr. Rex both this week AND next. Final details will be released in next week’s bulletin and Mr. Rex should have the schedule to send out via Remind by the end of the week.
