BCHS Band Students Attend All Star Band

From Katie Raffety

Just wanted to pass on a pic of our All Star Band students from this weekend and share the link to the recorded concert with you! I am so proud of their hard work, cumulatively about 15 hours of practice over 2 and a half days and they presented the most beautiful concert featuring three bands, all of which performed a number of works by guest composer and conductor, Julie Giroux. We all enjoyed working with Julie, who none of us realized was as cool as she is until we got to listen to her talk- kids were totally star struck when she listed off a million video games she's worked on (Skyrim being the most recent), and about a dozen big name composers she's collaborated with (one of her first jobs was as an orchestrator for Alan Menken of The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast fame in the 90s, not to mention John Williams). She's also won several Emmys and been nominated for a number of Oscars- pretty cool! Thank you so much for your flexibility in their absence last Friday, I so appreciate your support and I know they do too! If you have a minute to enjoy some cool tunes, the concert link is below! You might recognize the accordion player a little more than halfway through- BCHS grad Kristen Cottom (now Guidoni) was featured as a soloist!
