Indoor Percussion - The Black Gold Percussion Ensemble kicked off the indoor competition season at Pace High School this past Saturday. They had a wonderful performance to start the season. This was the first of 2 in-person performances. They will have 3 virtual performances, one of which will be recorded this Thursday. We invite anyone and everyone to come see the Indoor Percussion this Thursday during this recording session at 7:30 in the Gym. This is FREE to watch and will not be live-streamed. Come one our and support our wonderful students!
Concert MPA Performances - This Saturday, March 6th, the Symphonic, Concert, and Panther Bands will be in performance. They will be joined by Jay High School, Baker Middle School, and Baker High School bands. This is a FREE concert in the gym. See performance schedule below. The BPA will also be selling concessions during this event. We ask that everyone please be mindful of the performances. If you have to leave the gym for any reason, please do so AFTER a band performs. You will not be allowed to enter until the band has completed their performance. The adjudicators will also be giving live feedback after each performance to the bands. We ask that you stay as quiet as possible so that band will be. IF you would like to learn more about concert etiquette, we encourage you to watch this short video created by 2 of our alumni. Just CLICK HERE. We will also be live-streaming the entire concert. You can access the live stream by CLICKING HERE.
Help Needed at Concert - We are in need of parent help throughout the concert. We need a couple parents to help watch the door at the entrance to the gym from the lobby to keep people from entering during the performances. There are 4 spots from 12:30-5:30 available. You can CLICK HERE to sign up. Also, the BPA is in need of help at the concession trailer to help cook and sell during the concert. Please sign up by CLICKING HERE.
Colorguard Solo and Ensemble - On Monday, March 8th, the Colorguard will be giving evaluated solo and ensemble performances. These will be held in the auditorium beginning at 5:30pm. This another FREE event. All are invited to attend with the same concert etiquette requests. We will also be liv-streaming this event which can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have an amazing week!
