After discussing with the Music Educators of Bergen County Executive Board, the decision has been made to postpone the Middle School Band and Choir Festival until the Spring. This decision was based on the guidelines set by the state on the reopening procedures for schools. We will not be posting the band audition piece at this time until we have an official date for auditions, rehearsals, and concerts.
Congratulations to Theodora Sotiropoulos (Northern Highlands Reg. H.S.-Retired) on being selected to conduct the 2020-2021 Bergen County Middle School Band.
The 2020 audition piece for wind/brass instruments will be “High Flight,” a commissioned work by composer Chris Bernotas, celebrating 30 years of the Bergen County Middle School Band.Due to this being a commissioned work, as well as issues with Covid-19, parts are still being finalized. When they are available, you will receive and email on how to request PDF parts, that can then be emailed to students. Please continue to check your emails, as well as the website for updates on part availability. We appreciate your understanding in this situation.
