BSD7 Music Team Updates Mission and Vision Statement

BSD7 Music

Mission - BSD7 Music exists to prepare/equip BSD7 students to be thoughtful and skillful

producers and consumers of music.

Vision - To be a model of music instruction where every student

grows in and through their music

BSD7 Hosted MMEA Conference & All-State Music Ensembles

BSD7 hosted the Montana Music Educators Association annual state conference at Gallatin High School October 20-21. This conference brought together hundreds of educators from across the state to participate in two full days of professional development sessions including general music, orchestra, choir, band, and common interest topics. It’s an eclectic mix of music educators - from those who only teach a specific music elective in one grade level band to those who are the only music teacher in their entire district k-12.

Alongside the professional conference, MSU hosted the All-State band, choir, and orchestra ensembles. Hundreds of student musicians traveled to Bozeman October 19-21 and worked with world-class clinicians from across the country to rehearse repertoire in preparation for the final concert held Friday night at GHS.

BSD7 Music had over forty students who were selected to participate in the All-State Ensembles!

Students and teachers alike enjoyed a host night concert at Wilson Auditorium, Thursday. The special musical guest this year was American jazz singer and trombonist Aubrey Logan. In addition to her success as a solo artist, Aubrey was also an American Idol contestant, and is a featured artist with Postmodern Jukebox and the Dave Koz band.
