Band Bulletin #25: 3/3-3/9

Congratulations to all our bands for a wonderful Mid-Winter Concert last week! We’re so proud of the work our students have done committing to musical excellence. Our next and final formal band concert is Thursday, May 2nd. We look forward to working on some new and exciting literature!

Congratulations also to our band members who have also been achieving great things outside the rehearsal hall with Robotics, Gymnastics, Wrestling, Basketball, Swimming, and Speech & Debate. We are very fortunate to have so many opportunities at BBHHS for students to develop and excel in multiple activities and skills!

WIND ENSEMBLE OMEA ADJUDCATION

On Saturday, March 9th the Wind Ensemble will be performing at the OMEA Large Group Adjudicated Event at Mentor High School. Wind Ensemble will perform their three pieces from the Mid-Winter Concert for a panel of three judges who will assess the performance and assign a rating from 1 to 5, with a 1 or “Superior” being the highest. After the stage performance students will be assessed on the sight reading by performing a piece of music that they have not seen prior for a fourth judge. This is not a performance to take lightly, but we know our students will do great! Call time for students is 8:15am and the performance time is 11:15am in the Mentor High School auditorium. The performance is free and open to the public. We would love to see some familiar faces in the audience supporting these talented students’ hard work!
