Congratulations to the Bumpus Symphonic Band and the Bumpus Concert Band I on receiving straight superior ratings at the Alabama Bandmasters Association Music Performance Assessment!
Congratulations to Claire Jun on being selected to the Alabama Bandmasters Association Middle School All-State Band! Claire was selected to this group based on her performance on a very challenging audition today. The All-State Band is comprised of approximately the top 1% of band students in the state. This is an enormous accomplishment, and we are so proud of Claire! In addition to this, we had 8 students who were selected to the Alabama Bandmasters Association District IV Middle School Honor Band, which is comprised of approximately the top 1% of band students in the Jefferson and Shelby County area. ABA District IV is arguably the most challenging district in the state with the Birmingham metro area having so many great band programs, so to be selected to this group is a huge honor as well. Students selected to the District Honor Band were Claire Jun, Ria Shah, Enrico Addy, Graci Moore, Tyner Patterson, Cullen Blanton, Ethan Heywood, and Evan Dobyns. Congratulations on this wonderful accomplishment!
