BJH Band Wins Big!
On Saturday, April 18, our Intermediate and Concert Bands participated in the Music in the Parks festival at Knott's Berry Farm and enjoyed a fantastic day. Both bands had their best performances of the year so far and showed tremendous musical progress. Due to our successful performances both on and off the stage, we brought home FOUR trophies!
- Intermediate Band earned an EXCELLENT rating and a 1st place trophy in their division (AA Concert Band Division 2).
- Concert Band earned a SUPERIOR rating and a 1st place trophy in their division (AA Concert Band Division 1).
- Intermediate Band's score was the second highest of all concert bands in all divisions (junior high and high school concert bands)
- Concert Band's score of 93.5 was the highest score of all concert bands in all divisions (junior high and high school concert bands) and they earned the OVERALL Concert Band trophy.
Lastly, our collective BJH Bands earned us the prestigious ESPIRIT DE CORPS AWARD! This is the highest honor awarded by Music in the Parks. It has nothing to do with the groups' musical performances, but rather their performance OFF STAGE. It is given to the school who demonstrates the best behavior, respect, teamwork, and school spirit. It is only given to ONE school out of all who attended.
Music in the Parks attendees included bands, orchestras, and choirs from all over California and some from out of state. We are tremendously proud of the students! We really went out with a bang!
