6th Grade Beginning Band Concert Dec. 10 –

The 6th grade bands will present a concert on Monday, Dec. 10 in Schafer Auditorium at BMS. The students should arrive at 6:30 and report to the stage in Schafer Auditorium. The concert will begin at 7:00 and there is no admission fee charged for the concert. The students should try to look nice. Most of the guys will wear a nice shirt or sweater with dress pants or a nice pair of jeans. The girls usually wear a nice outfit or dress.

The kids are really fired up about this first concert. The brass, woodwinds and percussion will all be featured. I’m very excited with the progress and enjoy working with the band every morning.

Cookie Dough Sale Comes To An End –

The 2012 Band Cookie Dough Sale has come to an end. All money should be in now and we are in the process of closing down the project. Please resolve any remaining accounts right away. Checks can be made out to BMS Bands. We will do the cash prizes after all the money has been collected and turned in. Thanks again for all the support and time. I know it took a lot of work and sacrifice. I am truly humbled by all the effort and help shown.

ISSMA Solo and Ensemble –

It is time for our 7th and 8th grade band members to sign up for the ISSMA Solo and Ensemble Festival. It will be held at Bloomington North HS on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013. More information is available at the band office for those interested. This is not a required event. It will involve extra practice time and lessons so students need to give this some serious thought before committing. We do have a deadline of Nov. 27 to return fees. See added page to this website for more information.

Every Day is Thanksgiving

This time of the year is a great time to reflect on everything we are so thankful for. I do this every morning as the school day begins. I love my job and working with the band students at BMS. I am thankful for the opportunity to see them ever day and a smile comes across my face every time I think of them.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break!
