Big Rapids Middle School students play in MSBOA Honors Band

Honors Band

MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS PERFORM HONORABLY: The Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association held their annual Middle School Honors Band concert on Dec. 8, at Shelby High School. For students to be eligible for admission into the group, they must have received a first division rating at solo and ensemble festival earlier this year. The Big Rapids band program was well-represented, with 28 seventh and eighth grade students nominated to perform with the Honors Band, 26 of which attended – more than any other participating school.
