MSMS Symphonic Band with the BHS Marching Band

Tonight, a magical moment occurred bridging the gap between the middle school and the high school.
For the first time, the middle school Symphonic Band under the direction of Marcia Medvitz joined Mr. Matt Lovell and the BHS Red Devils Marching Band for the National Anthem. Thank you for all the staff and volunteer parents for helping make this happen.

Surely this will create life long memories for all. The pride among the parents was palpable. Way to go!
