BHS Band Dominates Honor Band
The BHS Band had a TREMENDOUS amount of success at the North Florida Honor Band tryouts this week!
This honor band consists of the top high school musicians from Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Gilchrist, Suwannee, and Union Counties. That list includes 9 total high schools. Last year BHS had the majority of the band with 19 members.
This year BHS had a record number of 27 total students make the honor band!!!
This is incredible! Mr. Sullivan's first year here we were blessed to have 9 all-star students make the ensemble. We have now tripled our number in just three years!
Here are some more statistics:
- Out of the 16 possible instruments in the band, BHS has 8 First chair players!
- Out of the BHS group, we have: 9 Seniors, 3 Juniors, 4 Sophomores, and 12 FRESHMEN in the band! The future is definitely bright for BHS!
The honor band that consists of around 60 members total between 9 schools will have almost half of that being Bradford students!
