Recent Highlights...

BCS Bands Awarded Energy for the Arts Grant!!

The BCS Instrumental Music program (BCS Bands) was awarded a $1,000 Energy for the Arts Grant from South Jersey Energy in 2015 and the money was used to purchase a concert bass drum - something BCS has never owned! The same grant was awarded to BCS Jazz Band in 2013.

Fifteen area school competitive arts programs will be selected for this year's award. A press release has been issued on South Jersey Industries' website, which you can read by clicking here! The 15 winners will also be mentioned on the South Jersey Energy website, under the "Energy for the Arts" heading.

South Jersey Industries and its subsidiaries take pride in fostering relationships that bring good causes and good people together to make a change for the better. The $1000 in grant money will help offset the cost of participating in the jazz festivals BCS attends each year.

BCS is eligible again in 2017 but the Energy for the Arts Grants are not offered by South Jersey Energy this year. BCS will surely apply when available in 2018!
