Baldwin Park Wrap Up GREAT job to our Marching Matadors who represented us at the Baldwin Park parade! Our band score improved 7 points to an 86.6 in ONE week–an indicator of your hard work in just one week. I am very proud of you all! A HUGE thank you to our parent chaperones and volunteers, these events cannot happen without your help.

Band Pageant Everyone must have a ticket to come see the Placentia-Yorba Linda School District’s 44th Annual Band Pageant on Wednesday, November 6th, at Bradford Stadium at 7:00 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased in advance from you, or at the gate that night.  You will sell them for $5.00, but if they are purchased at the gate that night, the cost is $6.00. The pre-sale tickets are a fundraiser for BYEU, while the tickets sold at the door support music district-wide. Students are responsible for returning unsold tickets, and/or $5 per ticket sold. SEE INFO SHEET

Concert Band & Percussion has been invited to perform at BYMS’s Veterans Day Ceremony on Tuesday, November 12th. See attached info sheet. Details will be discussed in class.

Optional Knott’s Berry Farm Performances – Marching Band, Jazz Band & Orchestra We have been accepted to take a group of students to perform at Knott’s Berry Farm! This is an “extra” trip and is not required to attend for a grade. In order to attend, students will need to provide their own admission. There are two options for this:

  1. Bring in proof of Knott’s Berry Farm season pass – will be photocopied per request of Knott’s Berry Farm
  2. Purchase a discount ticket through BYEU for $35.00

We will be performing music that will be featured at our Winter Concert as well as some additional songs. Students who attend will miss all day of school and are responsible for making up missed work.

Please bring money or your season pass (to be copied) by
