The BBHHS band program aims to provide a unique musical experience for students, one that is both aesthetically rewarding and personally fulfilling. The concert ensembles study and perform music of high quality, which is stylistically diverse and appropriately challenging for all musicians. The BBHHS Bands have received “Superior” and “Excellent” ratings at OMEA Large-Group Adjudicated Events, and perform three concerts per year in the BBHHS Auditorium. In 2007 and 2013, the BBHHS Wind Ensemble performed in Severance Hall for the Northeast Ohio Band Invitational (NEOBI).
At the conclusion of the football season, the “Marching Bees” divide into four concert bands (grades 9-12): Wind Ensemble (Class A or AA)* Concert Winds (Class B) Symphonic Band Gold (Class C) Symphonic Band Crimson (Class C)
*The letters “AA,” “A,” “B,” and “C” refer to the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) system of band classification. Class “AA “is the highest difficulty of music.
