The Symphony Band is one of the most outstanding features of Benton
Harbor High School. To many individuals, it is the highlight of their years
in high school.
To become affiliated with this organization, one must not only be a good
musician, but he must also know and understand the skills and musical
knowledge on which this group has built its reputation.
Each year the Symphony Band participates in various events throughout
Southwestern Michigan, and in addition, furnishes music for many school
and community events. In the spring of the year, the Symphony Band centers
its attention on such events as the district contest, which this year was hekl on
March lst in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Many other activities which the band
also included in its program for the concert season of l957 are as follows:
February 28 Concert at Niles, Michi'gan
March 5 Annual Assembly Concert
March 27 Annual Anniversary Concert
April 27 State Contest at Ann Arbor, Michigan
June 3-7 Commencement activities
"The Second Symphony" by Borodin and 4'The North Sea Overture" by
Hermann have been featured selections in the repertoire ofthe band this year.
Their annual concert provides us with much enjoyment and also proves
that the aims of the organization, which are providing musical enjoyment and
striving for perfection, have been once again accomplished for the year
ln conclusion, we the members of this organization, would like to state
that it has indeed been an honor playing under the baton of Mr. Kuschel, a
fine director in the eyes of all concerned.

The orchestra is one of the busiest and most versatile organizations in our
high school. The members must be able to adapt their playing to many dif-
ferent styles of music which range from the gay, lilting melodies of a Broad-
way musical to a Beethoven symphony.
The orchestra performs many times during the school year. These per-
formances include a Christmas program put on for the student body, the
annual concert held in March, and the district band and orchestra contest.
Besides this, a smaller theater orchestra is required to play for the senior
class play, the all-school play, baccalaureate, class night, and to furnish an
instrumental background for the operetta.
In addition to this, a string ensemble composed of two violins, a viola,
cello, bass viol, and piano, play for many dinners and other social gatherings
throughout the year.
In early February, members of the orchestra traveled to Kalamazoo to
compete in the district solo and ensemble contest where many received high
honors for their efforts.
"Symphonic Miniature," by Bakaleinikoffg "Three Brothers Overture,"
by Cimarosag and "Sonata Da Chiesa," by Corelli, are the major works being
performed by the orchestra this year.
Each year, the orchestra improves greatly in musical ability, and we are
all sure that in a few years, under the capable direction of Mr. Etling, our
orchestra will be known as one of the best in the state.
