Membership Drive is this Saturday, Aug. 7, from 10AM to 1PM for all incoming sophomore, junior, and senior music students. Please arrive NO LATER than 9AM to the Bay High School Auditorium for welcome and instructions.
Students will go out in teams on the route they signed up for. If they have one, they need to wear their Bay Orchestra polo. Otherwise, they can wear Orchestra spirit wear. If they have neither, they will receive a clean shirt when you arrive.
A music pool party will be held the evening of August 7 from 8PM to 9:30PM at the Bay Village pool.
The Booster Membership Drive is our single biggest fundraiser all year, so it is important that all who can participate, do so.
You are invited to the year’s first BHS Orchestra Ice Cream Social on Thursday, August 5, from 4PM to 5PM at Mitchell’s in Westlake. Catch up and meet the new crew! Please bring cash. Thanks to the Orchestra Social Committee for the idea and for help setting this up. Hope to see you there!
As a Bay Music Boosters parent, you have many opportunities to get involved and support your children and the music program. We have a number of events coming up shortly that we would sincerely appreciate your help with. To sign up for any (or all!) of these events, please click the link below.
Please click here to view the Bay High School Band Calendar for 2021-2022.
Per Darren Allen, Bay High School band director: “Although this calendar is as accurate as can be expected (as of June 2021), there may be additions and corrections as we proceed through summer. Please refer to this list at all times when making vacation and work plans. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to email Darren.firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back to you more quickly through email. Your attendance at ALL performances and scheduled rehearsals is required! We count on YOU! With this much advance notice, work, birthdays, Indians tickets, babysitting, dinner conflicts, etc. will never be considered acceptable excuses for missing. POST THIS ON YOUR REFRIGERATOR NOW!”

It has been quite a year! I thank every student for their hard work. It was particularly hard making choices this year, as many students made improvements. Click here for the Symphonic Band roster. (I apologize for any typos.) If anyone would like to play French horn in the Symphonic Band (brass players make the best switch), please let me know. Also, some of our sax players will have to diversify from alto to tenor. If a student feels like they made progress over the summer, I will hear a re-audition towards the end of marching band season.
A big congratulations to all our new squad leaders and to our field commanders: Milan Oppewall and Sophia Buckingham! With these leaders, I know we will have a great season in the fall.
Finally, the engine of the marching band; the drumline. We have another large group this year, and I hope we will build on the success of the previous year. See below for the drumline roster.
