Band Bulletin #9: 10/13-10/19

Thank you to everyone for another great away game and halftime performance! Our Bees football team is now 5-2, and is currently ranked high enough to qualify for playoffs. Please be advised that should the team continue this great winning streak we will likely have a playoff game on either November 8th to 9th. There will not be any additional evening rehearsals for playoff games, but attendance at any playoff games is required.

This Friday we have two exciting events! The Marching Bees will be featured on the Fox 8 Morning Show with Kenny Crumpton LIVE from BBHHS(see details below). We also welcome over 70 future Marching Bees as the 8th Grade Band joins us for Pregame and Halftime. We’re looking forward to having 350 Marching Bees on the field!

DEADLINE: Friday, October 18th is the Senior Show music check-off deadline for all Section Leaders and Officers.
