Band Concert & Can Drive this Wednesday!

Friendly Reminder!

This Wednesday, December 13th, is our Winter Band Concert at the BSHS Gymnasium. Call time for students is 6:30pm. The concert will begin at 7pm.

Students must be dressed in their concert uniform and ready to warm up by 6:30pm.

As a part of the giving season, we are asking each family to bring one canned good or non-perishable good to donate when they come to the concert. It's our way of spreading a little extra joy for our community this year.

Middle School students will rehearse together Wednesday morning. Students will be dismissed to the band room at 7:45am. We will walk over to the HS for rehearsal. Students will be back to the middle school in time to catch the bus at 11am.

A message from Mrs. Rosselit

As your students have probably mentioned, I have had to go on medical leave early due to my pregnancy. My first priority is making sure my baby is growing appropriately and is healthy. Thus, I will not be returning to work until after my maternity leave.

Mr. Adam Emeigh has assumed my duties as head band director for the remainder of my sick leave and maternity leave. He is familiar with the program and with the rigors of the job. I have full confidence that the Berrien Springs Band Program will continue to thrive under his leadership. We are currently trying to get my maternity sub in early, but until that happens, we are asking for flexibility as we make this change work.

All correspondence and questions regarding the band program should be directed to Mr. Emeigh. I will be checking in with him on a limited basis to see how the bands are doing and to help with any paperwork that I can while on leave.

Merry Christmas to you and your families. May 2018 be a wonderful year for our program and community. I will look forward to hearing the bands' progress when I return in the Spring.

Musically Yours,

Kelly Rosselit

Director of Bands
