Band Bulletin #27: 3/24-3/30

THANK YOU again to everyone that made the MIOSM Pancake Breakfast a HUGE success! It was such a great experience to see so many facets of our BBHCSD music programs highlighted while enjoying some delicious pancakes!

We’ve reached a little bit of a lull in our band calendar as we approach Spring Break and the music department prepares for the Spring Musical, Mama Mia(tickets on sale HERE). This is an excellent time to think about summer music camps and extra performing opportunities during the school year. Several events have audition and application deadlines coming up this Spring. Participation could be used for Honors Wind Ensemble credit next school year. Feel free to contact Mr. Rex with questions about any of the opportunities below.
