DC Tumblers, (except BNL) Have Arrived – 

The tumblers have arrived. $6 for each tumbler sold will go into the student’s Music Travel Account to offset the trip cost. Money should be collected when the tumbler is delivered to the customer. Checks can be made out to BMS Bands.

The BNL tumblers are special order and should arrive Dec. 16 and be ready for distribution on the 17th.

Congratulations 6th Grade Band –

Congratulations to our 6th grade beginning band students for a tremendous first concert. You did a wonderful job and I’m very proud of you. You have come so far in just a couple of months.

The next 6th grade performance will be for the NLCS Fine Arts Festival. The festival begins April 4, 2016 and we will perform on Tuesday, April 5.

Washington DC Trip at Capacity –

The Washington DC trip has reached full capacity. We have started a wait-list for those still interested. Please let the band office know if you would like to be placed on the wait-list. We will notify you to register when seats open up. The third payment is due Jan. 7. Make sure to visit the website: to pay this third installment.


Cookie Dough Money Due –

The cookie dough fundraiser has come to an end and the money is now past due. The sale was a huge success, but now we have the job of collecting all the money. Thank you to all that helped with this project.

Indiana University Young Winds –

The 2016 Indiana University Young Winds program begins Jan. 30, 2016. It is a program designed for middle school instrumental students as a supplement to the instruction they receive in school. The program focuses on small-group lessons as well as a full band experience for students surrounding the Bloomington campus.

It is a wonderful program. Many of our students have participated over the years. I can’t speak highly enough about this opportunity and the benefits of participating.

Young Winds will meet on Saturdays from 9 am to 11 am in the Musical Arts Center (MAC) on the IU campus.  The MAC is located on Jordan Avenue, one block north of 3rd Street. There is a $15 registration fee and $60 tuition fee.
