The Music Department and Music Parents Association have been busy throughout the winter, with its most recent activity the pancake breakfast that was successfully held on Feb. 1. BHS music students served several hundred diners at the event, as well as entertained them with fun performances throughout the morning. (See photos of students participating at the breakfast.)
