BCHS 11th grade trumpet player, Schuyler Montgomery, was selected to the All-State Band, for the 5th year in a row!  From among 2,400 applicants throughout California who submitted audition recordings, Schuyler was selected as a member of the Wind Symphony, the top All-State Concert Band. "The music is extremely difficult," said Schuyler, "but I like the challenge and the experience of  meeting and playing with so many great musicians from other schools."

The Wind Symphony will perform a concert on February 13 at the All-State Music Education Conference in San Jose, and will be performing the world premier of David Maslanka's piece entitled, "California." The ensemble will be conducted by Dr. Mallory Thompson from Northwestern University.
