Congratulations to our Bainbridge High School Symphonic and Concert Bands!  On March 1-2, both bands earned Superior Ratings for the 38th consecutive year! The Symphonic Band is directed by Director of Bands, James Sewell.  The Concert Band is directed by Assistant Band Director, Will Parker. Our Bainbridge Middle School 7th & 8th Grade Concert Band also participated in the festival earning All Superior Ratings and is directed by Mr. Brad Moore.

A Superior Rating is the highest score a band can receive and places our bands among the very best bands in the state.   The bands participated in an evaluation process overseen by the Georgia Bandmasters Association and were evaluated on over two dozen categories of musical, technical, and performance fundamentals.  This evaluation follows an extended period of instruction in class as well as in after school rehearsals. These evaluations are invaluable to the continued success and improvement of the performance groups and the programs they represent. 

Mr. Sewell stated “I am very proud of our band students at Bainbridge High School and Bainbridge Middle School. They have had to overcome so many challenges, but they have persevered and continued to excel.  They work very hard to achieve so many wonderful things and to always do extremely well at everything we ask them to do.  It is truly an honor to work with these students, their parents, as well as our band staff and our band boosters organization.”
