Extracurricular Music Ensemble Informational Meetings
BMS offers additional extracurricular student music activities that are designed to complement, but not replace the grade-level curricular during-school ensembles. Examples of these extracurricular options include: Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, Camerata Chorus, and Percussion Ensemble. Due to the advanced level of musical literature these groups often perform, participation is determined by audition.

This week we will begin the process with informational meetings for these extracurricular groups. All information will be provided for students to take home and discuss with their parents and/or guardians.

Camerata Chorus, Wed, Sept 11th @ 7:30am room 280
Wind & Jazz Ensembles Thurs, Sept 12th @7:30am room 286
Chamber Orchestra Tues, Sept 17th @ 3:00pm room 286
