BHS Students Participate in DSO Middle School Honor Band Days

On Monday, March 11, the finest middle school musicians from all over the Detroit metro area gathered at Orchestra Hall in downtown Detroit to attend the Middle School Honor Band Day sponsored by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). Students were nominated by their directors and then accepted based on their ability and instrumentation. This year 18 students from Bloomfield Hills Middle School, 2 students from West Hills and 7 students from East Hill Middle School participated in the event.  

Students were divided into three ensembles named after famous composers: Holst Band, Grainger Band and Sousa Band. Throughout the day students worked with DSO musicians in like instrument sections, and were directed by DSO conductors on 3 pieces of music in preparation for an evening performance on the Orchestra Hall stage. They also were treated to performances by the DSO musicians throughout the day. 

Congratulations to the incredible BHS musicians on their excellent performances!
