From Mr. O’Connell: All my parents of Brass and Percussion players (trumpet, trombone, baritone, french horn, tuba)
The Brass Band of Battle Creek is hosting a Brass Day on Saturday May 20 (please note that this is the day of the MHS Prom). This group is made up of some of the finest brass and percussion players ON THE PLANET! For $25, your student can sit side by side with them for group rehearsals, small ensembles, and master classes! My own children have done this, and it has become a highlight of their musical careers!
Transportation and registration is on your own, as I will be out of town that weekend:( However, I HIGHLY encourage you to consider this. Registration is due by May 5, so don’t hesitate. This is the equivalent of going to a basketball day camp with Lebron James! The evening finishes with a concert that features the adult band, plus a combined students/adult performance. You will have to purchase tickets to watch the concert, but it is very worth it!
Middle school parents, if you register your student, understand that it is only a half day for them.
Please let Mr. O’Connell know if you plan on registering your student.
