Surround Sound Performances March 10-12
A performance like no other, Surround Sound brings the magic of music and color to the stage. Click here for more details.

We are in need of some items, as well as some volunteers for Surround Sound: We are looking for 11 long black robes. They can be costumes (Harry Potter Robes), Graduation Gowns, or Choir Robes. Please bring them into a rehearsal Monday or Wednesday anytime 6-9pm. If you would like to donate a book to the library, you may start bringing them in on March 6th. We will also collect at the show. We are looking for Harry Potter brooms to borrow for the show as well. We are looking for volunteers to do some light sewing (just 2 seams on each item). Please contact Mrs. Ossias if you are interested.

Calling All Band Backers!! We need your help with selling concessions for Surround Sound!! We will be selling water, snacks, candy, etc. before the show and during intermission. There will be two stations in the lobby and we would like to have at least 4 teams of two selling in the auditorium. This is not a huge time commitment and you can certainly still enjoy the show. Please email Jen Semmel at if you are interested in volunteering and for which show(s) you would like to help. Thanks so much in advance! Shows are March 10th at 7pm, March 11th at 7pm and March 12th at 6pm.

Surround Sound Ramp Take-Down - Help will be Needed! Immediately after the Sunday performance we will need help breaking down the ramps. Please come to the front of the stage to help after the Sunday performance has ended. Thank you!


Over-21 Casino Trip March 18

BKMB History
Laura Shaw is working on a History of the Marching Band and Southington Music Program. She is looking for any information you may have; pictures, recordings, fundraiser flyers, etc. She has a lot of stuff from 1999 to the present, so anything before that would be awesome. She especially wants things played for marching band and orchestra, special events, trips, and odd and interesting stuff like selling cleaning products as a fundraiser..yeah they did that! Send anything you have to


Next Band Backer General Meeting is March 1
The next General Band Backer meeting will be March 1st at 7:30pm in room C301. Minutes from the November 2, 2016 meeting are available by clicking THIS LINK.

These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at They are available for purchase at any time.


Band Backer Legacy Supporter Program: Once a Band Backer always a Band Backer
As someone who believes that a quality music program is something we need to preserve and continue to strengthen, what better community to reach out to then former Southington Band Backers and their families! You know first-hand what Southington's music program has done for your children. You know how lucky we are to have such a dedicated group of Music Educators in our town. You know that the Southington Band Backer organization's purpose is to strengthen and support the music programs in our schools. Your children may have moved on to bigger things but it's important to remember how they got there. With that spirit in mind we have a new opportunity for past Band Backers and their family's to continue to support and strengthen the Southington Music program for years to come. With an annual donation to the Southington Band Backers, a 501c3 charity, you will be listed as a Band Backer Legacy Supporter in the Music of the Knight Program Guide and receive 2 MOTK tickets as our thank you. You may choose from three Support levels. Bronze Level $100, Silver Level $200, and Gold Level $300. You know how important these programs are; please consider being a part of the sound for as long as you can. For more information or to pledge your support please contact Erik Semmel at Your charitable pledge of support will be billed to you automatically in July just before the marching band season begins.
