Indianapolis 500 Rehearsals & Final Thoughts –

The band will have a final rehearsal on Saturday, May 23 from 9 – 11 am. This rehearsal is crucial to the success of the band’s performance. The students will load instruments and equipment on to the semi after rehearsal.

The students should arrive at 3:45 am on Sunday morning and report to the BNL Band Wing (entrance 33).

They should bring money for snacks and extra souvenirs. The Motor Speedway will provide a lunch, entrance to the race, and a small souvenir to mark the occasion.

We should arrive back to BNL around 5:30 pm on Sunday.

Mr. Gales has offered to provide a church service Saturday night at the Community Baptist Fellowship on Hwy 58 near BNL at 6:30 pm for those interested.

Paige’s Music Display on Tuesday, May 26 –

Paige’s music will conduct an instrument display at Schafer Auditorium on Tuesday, May 26. Feel free to stop by any time between 6:00 and 7:30 pm. You will have a chance to look over instruments, talk with Paige’s Music representatives, and even rent an instrument that evening. Feel free to visit the Paige’s Music Website at:  All current band students and prospective band students are welcome.

Congratulations to Seth Jones –

A big congratulations goes out to Seth Jones for receiving the “Director’s Award” for 2015. This award is given to just one 8th grade band student each year and Seth was this year’s recipient. The award acknowledges a year’s worth of outstanding effort inside and outside the band building.

Year End Instrument Thoughts –

Paige’s customers may want to send instruments in for maintenance and cleaning. It is a free service if you have a maintenance agreement . You can call Paige’s at 1-800-337-0471 to arrange an instrument pick-up, ask any questions or request a loaner. Paige’s can then ship the instrument back to you or deliver it to BNL or BMS.

Some that rented at Melody Music in Bloomington for the school year may have a return date coming up soon.

School instruments will be sent in for cleaning and maintenance over the summer.

All instruments that are not school instruments need to be taken home for the summer. It will be a good idea to get them out every few weeks to keep valves and slides moving.

Fundraising –

A few students have fundraising money out. We need to wrap those projects up before school lets out for the summer.

Have a Great Week!
