19-Feb-2014 (HCS)- The Robert F. Bumpus Middle School Symphonic Band was one of only two middle school bands in Alabama selected to perform at the Alabama Music Educators Association (AMEA) In-Service Conference, which took place in Montgomery January 23-25, 2014.

In order to be selected, the band had to submit an application, recommendation letters from other music educators and a recording from the previous year. The AMEA Conference takes place each January as a professional development activity for music educators from across the state. Bands from around Alabama apply each year to be selected to play in one of the highly competitive performance slots.

The band is directed by Mr. Josh Lynch.

"Not only was the performance itself a big moment for our students, but the process of preparing to play in front of such a critical audience proved to be an incredible educational experience for myself and the students," Lynch said.
