YSU Wind Ensemble @ BBHHS – 2/5

This Thursday, the Youngstown State University Wind Ensemble will be visiting BBHHS!  They are performing at the OMEA State Convention on Friday, and we are one of two high schools that will be honored with a special performance of their program.  In addition, their conductor, Dr. Steven Gage, will work with the Wind Ensemble in the morning (we wish that every band could work with Dr. Gage… unfortunately, YSU is on a tight schedule).

We are privileged to host this outstanding college ensemble in our very own auditorium!
