Message From Mr. Burney, Choir Director
Welcome to another exciting year in the BHS Choral Department! I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the fantastic students that have chosen to be part of the “Tradition of Excellence.” The program currently consists of 250 students singing in 6 choirs. These choirs consistently receive superior ratings at the district, regional and national levels in both performance and sight reading. The choirs also participate in many community-based performances throughout the year. Through these experiences and performance opportunities, it is my hope that each student becomes a well-rounded and knowledgeable musician, and I hope it helps create a life-long love of music!

Excellence in Music
During the 2016-2017 school year, the Men's Choir was one of four high school choirs to be selected and perform at the Virginia Music Educator's Association Conference held at the Homestead in Hot Springs, VA. Also, during the 2017 District Choral Assessment held at Osbourn Park HS, five choirs received straight superior ratings in both performance and sight reading and one choir received excellent ratings in performance and superior ratings in sight reading. As we prepare for the 2017-2018 school year, we look forward to continuing to support your students in their love of music and singing!
