Get your calendar out because the Bridgewater-Raritan High School Band has been busy preparing for several upcoming performances that will be sure to heat things up.
The band is also thrilled to announce that 35 students have been selected into Region Band with many auditioning this coming weekend for All State Band—you can hear some of these talented students performing in the Winter Band Concert, set for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14 in the auditorium at Bridgewater-Raritan High School.
"We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy a sound that is the product of skilled musicians applying passion, consistent hard work and dedication," band parent Nancy Fischer said.
If you can't make it to the Winter Band Concert, make plans to come out to enjoy the school's jazz bands, which will be participating in the NJ Association for Jazz Education State Jazz Preliminaries, hosted by Bridgewater-Raritan High School on March 11. The event will begin at 5 p.m. and continue through the evening in the auditorium at the school.
This event will be open to the public and people are encouraged to stop by at any time that evening to hear different bands compete from across the state.
