Rehearsal Reminder for 7/31!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, July 31st we have HS Marching Band Rehearsal!

Open Band Room: 4:30-6:30pm at BSHS (all students 6-12 can come by to practice)

High School Band Rehearsal: 6:30-8:30pm at BSHS (Required Rehearsal)

If it is raining we will do a music rehearsal inside. If it is not raining we will practice our show on the faculty parking lot. Regardless, bring proper foot attire (athletic shoes WITH LACES) just in case!

Make sure you have your drill! We will be drawing for the "end of camp" prize at rehearsal (just a couple days late!).

Watch your email for something BIG happening this week!

Band Camp Recap

The 2018 Shamrock Marching Band had a fantastic week for band camp! They worked hard and accomplished many of the goals we set for the week.

1. They learned all of the drill (spots and moves on the field) for all three pieces

2. They marched 2 1/2 pieces with music and drill

3. They learned their parade cadences

4. They learned how to high step

5. They learned how to work together as a team

They will keep rehearsing throughout the summer on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30pm (except BCYF week).

The Shamrock Marching Band will perform at all home football games, at Western Michigan University's Band Day on September 15th, at the Vicksburg Marching Invitational on October 6th, the MSBOA Marching Festival at Niles High School on October 10th, and at the Lakeshore Marching Invitational on October 13th.

Job Well Done, Shamrocks!
