This Week in Buena Music 5/13

Greetings Buena Music Families, 

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our mothers out there! I hope you have a wonderful day! 

I wanted to extend a special congratulations to the Buena High School Jazz Band for their 4th place title in a very close bracket with other competitors! The difference between 1st and 4th place was only a 3 point margin! Very well done and great job on your performance. Compared to their previous Jazz Festival, they played 2 completely different charts in the span of 2 weeks time – GREAT JOB guys! 

This email will be short because we all have a lot going on today –
