Congratulations to both the Bentonville West High School Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble on two fantastic performances Friday during Concert Assessment. Both Groups did a fantastic job earning Division 1 ratings on stage and Division 1 ratings in Sight Reading. Bands that earn a Division 1 superior rating in Marching, Concert, and Sight Reading receive a Sweepstakes award. This is the highest achievement a band can receive in the state. Both bands received this award. 

Thank you to everyone who helped create this program into an award winning band. The bar has been set high for all of us. I know we are all ready to push it higher!!
