Students interested in joining our award winning guard program should email coach Alisa Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this time, BHS does not have an established orchestral program. However, we do host a number of string players within the bands. Some discussion is needed before a proper placement can be made. Final enrollment is done by permission only.
Interested students or families should email email@example.com.
If enough string students are registered at one time, and there is interest, we can organize an orchestra club at BHS with little hassle at all. This is something that should be student driven, but Mr Thomas is will be happy to purchase music, set up performances, and facilitate rehearsals.
BISD may be interested in adding an orchestra class, if there is enough interest.
In band classes, string students can expect to play the following parts:
Violin | Flute or Oboe
Viola | Flute or Oboe (transposition needed)
Cello | Bassoon, Trombone, or Euphonium
Bass | String Bass (standard in some band music) or Tuba
One benefit to registering for band at BHS as a string player is that by registering for a large ensemble, students become eligible for a host of other programs:
WMEA All-State Honor Orchestra
NAfME All-Northwest Honor Orchestra
OMEA Regional Solo & Ensemble Contest
WMEA State Solo & Ensemble Contest
Other local youth symphonies that require co-enrollment in a school large ensemble
