UPDATED February 17th 2020:



This one of a kind performance is combining all band students from Big Lake Elementary, Su-Valley High, Willow Elementary, Houston Jr/Sr High, and Meadow Lakes Elementary for a unique concert. Come join us at Houston Jr./Sr. High on February 26th at 6:30pm.



Excellent Performance Big Lake Grizzlies during your Winter Concerts & way to go Choir for your performance in the Big Lake Tree Lighting Ceremony & Parade!


Is your child interested in learning to play piano? Mrs. Hardman offers group piano lessons through Keyboarding Club Tuesdays at 8:15 am through the year (it's already started, but late comers are always welcome!). Pick up a permission slip at the office. Any 2nd through 5th grader is welcome to come and learn! 




If your child loves to sing we would love to have them join our Choir! Choir is available to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. It is offered Wednesdays & Thursdays 8:15am-9am. If you would like to join, stop by the office to pick up a permission slip! Choir started August 21st and goes through the school year.


 Next Choir performance: in-school performance for the preschoolers on Tuesday, March 3rd at 1:20pm in the music room. Wear your choir shirts (I have some that can be borrowed if needed). Check out the recordings to practice with.


 Thank you to all those that auditioned for honor choir. Turn in your signed paper showing what times/days would work best to rehearse during the weeks leading up to our performance in April.


Honor Choir Tracks have been posted - click on the link for Honor Choir & Honor Band Information to find them.



Next Concert: Wednesday, February 26th at 6:30pm at Houston Jr/Sr High. This is the Combined Band Concert, a real treat to watch!



The BLE Flute Trio will be representing Big Lake Grizzlies on February 29th at Solo/Ensemble. We look forward to their performance and adjudication!


Thank you to all those that auditioned for honor band, the list of those who made it will be announced soon.


If your child wants to learn how to play an instrument we would love them to join our Band! Band is offered to 4th and 5th graders during the school day with the expectation that they will attend all of their evening concerts (about 2 or 3 through the year). See the link for the band info packet to decide if joining band is a good choice for your child. Instrument rentals are available but on a first-come first-serve basis so please let Mrs. Hardman know as soon as possible if you are interested in renting from the school. Band started on the 1st day of school, but if your child wants to join latecomers are still welcome! Band Information Packet



FYI - Returning Band Students: Band class is now on Day 1 instead of Day 3. See the schedule to figure out what day your sectionals meet.
