The 7th Grade band earned a 2-2-2 on stage and a 1 in sight reading for an overall rating of 2. For their first time performing at a high-stakes festival, they did great!

We are so proud of these kids! They worked hard and every band represented the high standards Berrien Springs is known for.

Thank you to all the parents that chaperoned, helped with uniform emergencies, and hauled instruments for us. We appreciate your hard work!

Thank you to all the parents and friends of the band that took time out of their busy days to come watch our kids play. Thank you for your support!

It is such a pleasure to teach your children. These kids overcame crazy schedules, snow days, music changes, and other conflicts to create 3 superb performances. We have a fantastic group of musicians. Thank you for letting them be a part of this program.

Thank you to everyone who organized and helped run our HS Band Lock In!
