Badger Bands rate highly at Group Festival, have more big events coming up (including one big event tonight!)
April 10, 2018
The Badger Bands are busy, as usual.

Their next big event is coming up tonight, Tuesday, April 10, when the Bonners Ferry High School jazz Band will join the high school Honor Choir in a presentation called Swing Jazz, a concert outlining the history of jazz in 1930s America. This promises to be a night of fun, dancing, and entertainment.

In early May, the BFHS band will be hosting in Bonners Fery the band from David Thompson Secondary School of Invermere, British Columbia, as they travel through Bonners Ferry on their way south. The will spend the day her to meet and exchange ideas with local BFHS band students, the bands will play together, and the Invermere band will also put on a performance for the Bonners Ferry students, with a dinner served afterward.

Both the high school Concert Band and the Middle School Bands recently participated in the District 1 Large Group Festival. The Middle School bands received a rating of "Excellent" for their performances, and the High School band received a "Superior" rating, the only small school to receive that honor.

"I am so impressed with the young people in our bands. What a huge accomplishment, great people on top of being great musicians!" said Badger Bands instructor Jessica Hanna.
