Boardman Center Intermediate and Glenwood Junior High proudly present two great winter band concerts on Wednesday, January 15 and Thursday, January 16!
The 5th and 7th grade band winter concert is Wednesday, January 15. The 6th and 8th grade band winter concert featuring our Glenwood 8th grade jazz ensemble is Thursday, January 16. Both concerts are at 7 PM in the Boardman High School Performing Arts Center.
These concerts will showcase the combined efforts of the Boardman Center Intermediate School and Glenwood Junior High School band programs.

We will also have each section on display with an arrangement of Li’l Liza Jane.
