Interested in Silver Cord? Civic Music is looking for 8-10 BHS Music Students to serve as ushers for their events. Please see me ASAP if interested. The next event is November 8th. This is a win-win opportunity.

The Music Boosters will once again be hanging the downtown decorations. The Boosters will be hanging the decorations on Sunday, October 28th. Parents and students should meet at the Perkins Park shelter at 7:30 AM to load the wreaths. Once loaded the will head downtown to hang them. Please consider helping. This is a good fundraiser for the Music Boosters and will go much quicker with many hands. Students will earn Silver Cord for helping.

The Music Boosters need a trailer or several pickup trucks to haul the wreaths. If you have a step ladder please bring it. 10 - 12 ft work well for hanging the wreaths, and 8ft ladders work well for the bows.

Great rehearsal today. I feel much better about us than I did on Friday evening (hopefully you do too). I hope to finish the second song tomorrow. Don't forget...this Saturday we are performing at the Port of Burlington. Call time is 9:30 AM and we perform from 10:00-10:15ish. We will not be wearing uniforms as I don't believe there will be any room for our trailer. Please wear something purple or gray.

Call time for Friday night is 6:30 PM. We will be performing our Phantom of the Opera Show for the first time. We will only march the opener...just didn't have time to learn any more in four days.
