BBHMS BAND CONCERT RECEPTION

We invite our high school band students and families to attend the Middle School Bands Winter Concert on Thursday March 12th at 7pm.  It will feature Jazz Band, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade bands.  After the concert (around 8:15) there will be a desert reception in the cafeteria where we need high school band members to be present and available to talk with all MS Band students about the HS Band Program. If you intend to apply for a leadership position for the 2020-2021 school year, this is a great recruitment event to include on your application.

OHIO STATE BANDS NIGHT

The Ohio State University will be hosting their annual Bands Night on Sunday, April 19, 2020 from 3:00pm-7:00pm. This event allows current high school junior and senior musicians (Class of 2020 and 2021) to explore opportunities for applying their talent to The Ohio State University Marching and Athletic Bands, concert bands, and jazz bands. You do not need to be a music major to keep playing your instrument after high school. If you are considering attending OSU in the future this will be a great experience!
