Middle School and High School Bands Receive High Ratings at MSBOA
On Thursday, March 8, the Middle School 7th and 8th Grade Concert Band performed at the MSBOA District 6 Band and Orchestra Festival at the Mendel Center, on the Benton Harbor Campus at Lake Michigan College.
The Middle School Band did a great job and earned a Division 2 rating with all A's and B's on judges sheets. The students did a great job representing our school while performing at the event.
On Wednesday, March 7, the High School Concert Band performed and earned a Division I rating. This is one of the bands highest ratings since Band Director Tianna Doe became Bangor Public Schools Band Director. Out of the possible 20 letter grades, 18 were A's. The students performed beautifully and, of course, behaved very well. It was really awesome to see that both groups brought many family members to the event to watch and support the students.
The HS band is now moving on to the state competition at the end of April.
