The BMS Bands were proud to perform RUSH on Monday, June 13th, 2016 at our annual spring concert.  

RUSH, for Band and Fixed Media, is the first-ever commissioned piece by Brownstown Middle School.  The piece was written by Dr. Jonathan Anderson, Professor of Music at Wayne State University.  The band's world premiere performance of this important new work adds to the growing repertoire of electroacoustic music for middle school wind ensembles.

Dr. Anderson and Mr. Mobley will be discussing their experience, when they present "The 'RUSH' To New Musical Compositions in Michigan" at the 2017 Michigan Music Conference.

This project was funded in part with grants from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, the City of Detroit Recreation Department, and the Woodhaven-Brownstown Education Foundation.
