POETRY and MUSIC students "Out Loud" and Victorious

Yesterday was a great day for the music department and its students!

First thing Wednesday morning the BHS Chorus, Select Chorus, Concert Band and Jazz Band journeyed to the Marshall Simonds Middle School to perform for the students, an annual trip that introduces the middle school music students to the high school music experience. The BHS student musicians missed first through third periods but performed brilliantly for the younger students.

At the same time there was a scurry of activity as several BHS music students were also semi-finalists in the Poetry Out Loud competition and had to compete in Fogelberg Auditorium for a place in the finals. After a bit of schedule shifting (and most likely jumping through hoops to get the job done) the music students were victorious and five will move on to finals! Of the seven first place winners, the following five were chosen from the ranks of the music department: Futaba Shioda, David Murray, Katie Pustizzi, Eric Leva and Kevin Parker, with wild card representative Chelsea Rose.

Congratulations to all the students for a job well done!
