About The Music Department
The B-CC Music Department has earned 2 Grammy Foundation awards and offers seven instrumental ensembles (Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Concert Orchestra, Advanced Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Band); three choral ensembles (Concert Choir, Advanced Choir, and Chamber Singers); Guitar, Piano, and IB music classes. Extracurricular activities include the pep band, drum line/percussion ensemble, pit orchestra and small quartets and combos. Nearly 500 students are enrolled in a music class each semester.
A reminder that all musicians must wear the concert attire. Females wear the required Lillian gown
and males may wear any comparable uniform to the poly-notch tuxedo . The Advanced and Concert Choirs also need the double strand choker necklace (ordered by Mrs. Itkin) and robes. The Music Boosters Community Closet still has some garments available. If you missed the sale and still need the required attire, contact MusicBoostersBCC@gmail.com to make an appointment for your child to try on outfits.
