Next Boosters Meeting: Monday, March 4, 2024, 7:00 pm
February 18, 2024
Thanks to the BHS students who stepped up to staff the Maltby Solo & Duet event last week! Your commitment showed the students how much we value and support the younger musicians in our community.
We know those who are going on the Disney Tour have been awaiting more details, and the Boosters are committed to sharing when we have firm information. Delta Airlines changed some flight numbers and consolidated the two return flights into one, and those details have been shared via the Band App. We are still awaiting some specific details before being able to share out the full itinerary, but stay tuned for that! What has been determined is the final cost for the trip (the initial amount was an estimate, but some costs did go up) for participants: $1398. Our incredible Treasurers will be working to message families with information regarding payments received, individual fundraising credits for students, and what Tiered Incentive your family has achieved that can be applied to this Tour, calculating the balance due by March 15.
Please encourage your band students to practice their instrument and the music for the upcoming Pre-Festival Concert and the District IV MSBOA Band Festival on March 6 at Waterford Mott! We hope family members can be there to support all our bands!
Monday, February 19: No School and a great opportunity to practice for the concert!
Wednesday, February 21: 2:30-3:30 PM Extra Rehearsal for Symphony Band + Wind Symphony ("Symphony Winds").
Thursday, February 22: 7 PM Pre-Festival Concert, BCPA.
Monday, February 26: 2:30-3:30 PM Extra Rehearsal for Symphony Winds
Looking Ahead: there will be an additional Extra Rehearsal March 4 to permit the Symphony Winds to rehearse with more complete instrumentation before Festival on March 6 at Waterford Mott High School.

The Brighton Band Boosters is a non-profit organization of parents and care-givers dedicated to working in partnership with our Band Directors to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our band students. We support all aspects of the band including the marching band, drumline, and color guard, as well as the multiple concert bands at all three schools.
The Boosters are run by a board of volunteers elected by our members each year. We provide all band parents and guardians the opportunity to actively support our amazing band programs by helping with things such as chaperoning events and student socials, helping to move band equipment and distributing uniforms, assisting with concert publicity, fundraising, and more. Our goal is to keep things running smoothly so the band directors can focus on the students and the music. Our fundraising efforts, most notably the sale of concessions during BAS sporting events, provide valuable financial support to the bands.
The Boosters meet once a month. Meetings are open to parents and care-givers from BHS, Scranton and Maltby and include information concerning the future of the band programs, upcoming events, and areas of concern or need. Throughout the year you will receive email newsletters from the Boosters with event updates and volunteer opportunities. To learn more about how you can contribute to the on-going success of our band programs please contact the Booster President JuliAnne Diesch or attend one of our upcoming meetings.
