Broadview Bowl Party for the BMS Bands on Dec. 7 –

On December 7th the BMS Band Department will go bowling at Broadview Bowl in Bedford from 4 pm to 6 pm. It will be a load of fun and a great time for the band kids to enjoy themselves after semester of hard work. The bands have done a tremendous job this year and I am very proud of them.

Parents can drop students off at Broadview Bowl at 4 pm and pick them up at 6 pm. The cost is free for students that sold the fall fundraiser (and turned in the money). Students that didn’t participate in a fundraiser just need to pay $5 that evening. The cost will include shoes and bowling balls. The students need to remember to wear or bring socks and that all school rules are in effect. Students may also want to bring money to purchase drinks at the concession counter and for any video games they may want to play.

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.

BMS Band to participate in the Annual L.I.F.E. Christmas Fantasia

The BMS Band Department is excited to participate in the 20th Annual LIFE Christmas Fantasia. The event will be on Saturday, December 1st at Parkview School’s Gym. The fantasia will feature trees, wreaths, centerpieces, and other Christmas items designed by individuals and groups from all around the area. Mrs. Cook has done a fantastic job putting together a BMS Band 7 foot tree for the auction. Mrs. Cook, along with myself and some 8th grade band volunteers, will assemble the tree Friday at 5:00 pm at Parkview.

The event will begin Saturday, Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. and the auction will start at 12:00. We encourage our families to come by and see all the wonderful Christmas items and maybe even bid on one to take home. The money raised will help LIFE continue to do all the wonderful things they do for our community.

ISSMA Solo and Ensemble –

Some of our 7th and 8th grade band members have signed up for the ISSMA Solo and Ensemble Festival. It will be held at Bloomington North HS on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013. 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. The deadline was Nov. 27 to return fees. See added page to this website for more information.

Have a great week!
