Our community showed up for its students during the August 6 membership drive and fundraiser. Your support will make a difference in the lives of our young musicians, whether through new student services, exciting activities, or more learning opportunities.
We strive to give our students the best possible music education and experiences every year. With your generous donations, we will have an incredible year of music in 2022-2023!
In the end, your gift is going to Bay Village students, and they can’t thank you enough.

Congratulations to the Symphonic Band for 2022-23. If you feel like you improved over the summer, I will hear you again towards the end of marching band season.

Thanks to everyone who prepared for the audition. Our drumline is the engine room of our band and a popular group. The following is where we think the group will sound the best after hearing auditions. We still have the auxiliary harness that we would like someone to use (tambourine, splash, cow bells, woodblocks). Please start learning your parts to cadences and pregame music. We will assign which bass drum students are playing soon.
