Students are to wear comfortable shoes or sneakers.

Students will assemble in the WBMSHS Parking lot at 10AM and step off will be at 10:30AM down Howard St to the Baseball Field Complex at the end of Howard St.

We will be playing pep band music: Don't Stop Believing, Final Countdown Crowdteaser, and Go Song (please bring all pep band music in your flipbooks so that we can choose more if needed)

HS Members will be playing the National Anthem at the ceremony which takes place at the Baseball Field Complex.

A letter or email from a parent/guardian must be sent to Mr. LeMarier if unable to attend on April 29th.  We are really in need of the HS members to play the national anthem.

Band and Chorus Senior SEMSBA Festival
 

The music department would like to congratulate Colleen Daly, Valerie Hurst, Jessica Gullak, and Jacob Cobb on their succesful performances at the 2017 Senior SEMSBA festival.  It was a fun weekend in which they were able to work with an auditioned band and guest conductors.  SEMSBA is a collection of 33 member schools in Massachusetts who promote music performance groups in school programs.  Each year they have a Senior festival (grades 10-12) and Junior festival (grades 7-9) in which students from SEMSBA member schools can audition to make the festival band. It is a very prestigious event and often times the first auditioned group a lot of performing students makes in a school setting.

We would also like to congratulate Chris Nenopoulos who will represent West Bridgewater at the Junior SEMSBA festival on May 4-5.

Band/Chorus Field Events 2016-2017
  The HS Band, MS Band, and Chorus will be doing performances throughout the year. You can download a list of planned performances here. They will be gone over during the first classes. We are requiring all band and chorus students to attend these performances unless a letter is received from a parent/guardion prior to the event that includes a reason for not being at a performance. It is important that students make every attempt to be at these events. Please contact Mr. LeMarier or Mrs. Diman if there are any concerns. Thank you for your understanding as we strive to become more of a part of the culture of WBMSHS.
