The BVW Band program held its annual Sound Byte Recruitment Concert on January 17th. This concert event featured performances from the LKMS and PRMS 8th grade bands, as well as side-by-side performances with those groups and the BVW Symphonic Band and Symphonic Wind Ensemble.
Afterwards, students and parents got to hear from our students and directors about the band program at BVW. All of the student materials were created by our Student Recruitment Committee, who have worked very hard for the last month to put this event together. Check out the videos below, as well as the Information Packet handed out for more info!

Students who made the NEKMEA District band were eligible to audition for the KMEA State Honor Groups. We had 13 students make these honor groups, and five of them won their audition-the most of any school in the state of Kansas! They'll perform with these groups at the 2017 KMEA In-Serivce Workshop in Wichita at the end of February. Congratulations to these students!
