Will you be in High School next year? Do you like music? Would you like to learn more about it? If you answered yes, consider taking Music Theory & Music History next school year. Each course is a semester long and may be taken separately or together. They will count as elective or fine arts credits towards your diploma. History will give you background of music all the way back to ancient times, and Theory will give you the chance to write music of your own! You do not have to be in Band or Choir to take these courses. Please see Mr. Richardson in the Band Room if you have questions.

Join the BC Bands on Saturday at the Fowler Theater for our annual Jazz Cafe' event. The music begins at 1PM and will feature our 3 BC Jazz Ensembles.
