Two OB middle school students, Gavin Lin and Christian Haymon, auditioned at Needham High School to be part of the Eastern District Select Middle School Band Festival of the Massachusetts Music Educators Association. Both students did an excellent job representing OB as they competed against students from 29 School Districts.

We are very proud of these students and are excited to announce that Christian Haymon was selected to participate in the Select Middle School Band Festival at Lincoln High School on Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14. Please congratulate both students if you see them.
