Bay Schools Music Students Perform in Columbus


We are very proud of Bay Schools music directors Darren Allen and Mark Awad and the students who performed with the Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony at the Ohio Music Educators Association (OMEA) Conference in Columbus last week.

Three Bay Middle School students of choral director Andy Novak also performed with the All State Children’s Chorus in Columbus.

What a wonderful day of beautiful music from our talented students.
