What is Concert Band?
The Concert Band is the 2nd performing ensemble at BMS and is under the direction of Mrs. Speer with assistance from Mrs. Capehart. This band is open to 7th/8th Grade students and in this class, these students continue to work on fundamental performance skills and intermediate ensemble skills. These students have many opportunities to perform as an ensemble, including the BMS Pep Rally in the Fall and Spring, the MMM Band "Mass Band" Night in November, the BMS Bands Christmas Concert in December, and a festival and Concert in the Spring semester.
Students also have the opportunity to perform individually in the All-Region Tryouts in November and Solo/Ensemble in the Spring semester.
