Due to the recent announcements regarding the Corona Virus, The BSCBand Board has decided that we should postpone rehearsals until April. We feel that it is in the best interest of all of our members; the health and safety of our members and their families being utmost of importance.
We are also at this time cancelling the performance of the Rite Of Spring. The Ballston Spa HS Musical has been rescheduled for that weekend, and therefore we would not have access to the auditorium, the equipment and several of our members are involved in that performance. Thank you for all of the work you have put into this piece.
After April 1 we will take a week to week approach, based on information from the school district and the government recommendations. The board will remain in contact during our hiatus, and if you have any concerns or questions please contact us via the website or through Tracy’s e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take care and be safe- we are looking forward to seeing you all as soon as we can!
Tracy, Kelly, Vern, Beth M, Beth C, Peter, and Jake
