The February lesson schedule has been posted to this site and our Google Classroom.
The Music in the Parks festival (outlined in the handbook) is tentatively scheduled for May 20th, two days after our Spring Concert. The plan will be to arrive at BRMS at the normal time, eat lunch during AE (students may purchase lunches or bring their own), then head over to Jackson HS. All of the ensembles will perform for adjudicators, then we'll head over to Six Flags. An award ceremony will take place in the afternoon, then we'll head back to BRMS. Students will need to be picked up from school. HOWEVER, we (as well as all of the other schools in Bordentown) are currently waitlisted due to limited performance venues. Information regarding payment will be sent home as soon as we move off of the waitlist. The tentative pricing is $71 ($34 if a student has a season pass) and $37 for chaperones (free if they have a season pass).
Lesson group numbers and the lesson schedule have been posted (to the left on a computer, bottom if you're on mobile).

Concert band (full band) meets on Mondays. Tuesdays, and Thursdays during AE. Jazz band (audition-based group) meets on Wednesdays and Fridays. Students who are also in chorus will report to Ms. Silvey on Thursdays. DIFFERENT THIS YEAR: Students check in with the AE teacher/classroom listed on PowerSchool THEN report to the auditorium for rehearsal EXCEPT JAZZ BAND AND SELECT CHOIR STUDENTS- they check in with Mrs. SG for AE attendance. Too complicated? It'll become routine soon!

Our award-winning marching band is composed of woodwind, brass, percussion, and colorguard students in grades 7-12. We perform at all BRHS home football games and compete every weekend in the USBands circuit. This year, we hosted our first-ever home competition on Saturday, September 18th and it was INCREDIBLE!.

This is an important topic which we will cover before all performances with the students and at the beginning of all performances with the audience. Good concert etiquette shows respect to the hours and hours of hard work that teachers and students have put into making the concert an enjoyable evening.
***We encourage you to bring small children, but if they become fussy or noisy, please step into the hallway or lobby with them.
***All electronics should be silenced (not on vibrate) and dimmed.
***Take as many photos as you like, but please turn off the flash.
***There is NO food or drink permitted in the PAC.
***All students will stay for the duration of the concert; as such, families should stay for the entire performance.
***Please do not interrupt the performance by leaving or entering during a song (unless it is to take care of a crying baby or something like that. :-)
***Do not talk or whisper during performances as this is distracting to other audience members.
