Congratulations to our IU Young Winds Participants –

Congratulations to Angelina Becker, Valerie Becker, Cameron Gratzer, Sophia Mata, and Jordan Strunk on a great performance at the I.U. Young Winds Concert last Saturday. I am very proud of you all and you represented the BMS Band very well. A big thank you goes out to you for your effort and to your parents for driving you to I.U. many times this spring.

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.

Elementary School Visits Are Underway –

I have started my yearly visits to the elementary schools to see the 5th graders. It has been a great opportunity to talk about signing up for band. Here is a link to the beginning band sign up form: https://bedfordmsband.com/beginning-band-sign-up-info/. We have a lot to offer here at BMS and the band program is a great way to get involved in our school.
