BACB's 2021 Winter Concert - CANCELLED

Last updated: Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 10:47pm

It is with great disappointment that the BACB announces that we will be unable to perform our winter concert again this year. We're hoping Harford County Public Schools will allow adult parks and rec groups back in the schools in January. Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, a portion of our band will be performing carols at Bel Air's annual Tree Lighting ceremony at Shamrock Park on Sunday, December 5th at 4:00 p.m. (immediately after the parade). We hope to see you there!
