BAND BULLETIN #4: 9/15-20 – NORTH ROYALTON HS BAND FESTIVAL!

Our first Home Game on Friday was a success! Even though the Bees did not come away with a victory, we were pleased that the Band put on very exciting and solid performances at both Pregame and Halftime. Keep up the good work, Students!

Jeff Mihalich has put together an outstanding promotional/recruiting video for folks to learn more about what the BBHHS Band Program has to offer. Please view the video at the link above (right under the slideshow). Thank you, Mr. Mihalich!

Excused Absences – Please note, to recover points for an excused absence from the festival, an additional activity will be required. While the actual performance experience cannot be made up, a large portion of the educational value of Band Festivals also comes from watching other bands. As such, we will ask you to complete an online assignment that involves viewing and analyzing videos of various Halftime shows. Please see Mrs. Astey for details.
