Band Bulletin #3: 9/8-12

Dear Band Parents and Students –

Thank you to all for an exciting weekend!  The band put on another great Halftime performance on Friday night at NRHS, and proudly represented BBHHS in Progressive Field at the Indians game on Saturday.  Great work, Students!

Also – A big THANK YOU to Karen Horvath, who sorted and organized all of the Indians ticket orders.

It was great to see the energy and camaraderie of the band, and the numerous improvements that were made from last week. CONGRATS! If we can continually improve each week throughout the season, there is no limit to what this band can accomplish.
