VBODA District Band Assessment – THANK YOU

Thank you to the parents, students, and directors of the VBODA District IV Bands for a wonderful weekend of music making at Great Bridge High School! Both the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble gave fantastic performances and received Excellent Ratings from the panel of adjudicators.

Because we did not receive a Superior Rating, the GBHS Band is not a State Honor Band for the year, but every member of the program should be proud for their hard work and preparation for this year’s band assessment. Thank you to all!
