BKW shines at All-County Music Festival

Students in an orchestra

The weekend of March 18-19, 31 middle school and high school students from BKW participated in the Schoharie All County Music Festival at Cobleskill-Richmondville High School.  Distributed between the middle school band, high school band, and high school chorus, these students rehearsed for 8 hours in their respective ensembles and performed an amazing concert Saturday afternoon.  We commend them for a job well done!
