Congratulations 6th Grade Band –

Congratulations to the 6th grade band on a great performance at the Annual Fine Arts Festival. You represented our program very well and I’m very proud of you.

 

Annual Big Splash Trip on Monday, April 18 –

I have been so impressed with our bands. Our next event is a trip to the Big Splash Water Park to reward the band students for playing at the concerts and rehearsing so well. The cost is $30 and it covers supper at the water-park, swimming and buses. Everyone that participated in either the fall cookie dough fundraiser or the spring butter braid fundraiser can deduct $5 from the cost for helping with the fundraiser and pay just $25. We hope to leave at 4:00 pm and return around 9:00 pm on Monday, Apr. 18. We are going on a week night to rent out the entire facility for the BMS Band Dept. We will be the only people in the water park, along with the Big Splash lifeguards and staff. Here is a link to information and a permission form: https://bedfordmsband.com/big-splash-info-2013/. The permission form and fee should be turned in to the band office by Thursday, April 14.

BNL Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble Auditions  –

The BNL Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble audition materials are available. We have some very strong candidates and the process is upon us. There is more information and a form that needs signed available at the band office. Students do not need to audition for the White Band (freshman band), the Red Band or the Marching Band. Good luck!

BNL Marching Stars Information – 

Marching Band sign-up forms and summer calendars are available in the band room for students interested in marching with the BNL Stars next year. I would love to see everyone march. I’ve already received a lot of forms and we have a lot of interest in this wonderful activity.

Upcoming 7th & 8th Grade Concert – 

The final concert for the band program is May 19. The 7th and 8th grade bands will perform in the BMS Schafer Auditorium. The concerts are free and all are welcome.

Have a great week!
