Band Update

October 18, 2020

From the Director

Dear BVN Band Family,

Another week of Hybrid mode down, and another up this week. Last week was one full of some great hybrid rehearsals, MAB rehearsals, and the first MAB performance in BVN history! Congratulations to MAB members for their fantastic performance and professionalism last Friday night at the football game! You carried yourselves with pride! Another special congratulations to our group of seniors who performed Friday, it may have been a weird marching/football season, but we are proud of you and excited for the rest of your senior year and the wonderful futures you have ahead!
