On Thursday night, the BC Drumline and Brass Ensemble rocked the house! Actually the Brass and Beat Concert took place in the BC gym in front of an appreciative audience, including Nan and me.  It was great to see several employees from the college come out to support our community events and support our music program.

Watching the students perform, seeing their dedication and passion reminds me why music and the arts are a vital and essential part of our core curriculum.

Thanks to Director Tim Heasley and to everyone who supports the Drumline and brass ensemble.  What a great way to recruit future Renegades!

    Thank you for calling attention to one of the many groups in whom we can take pride at Bakersfield College. Music and the Arts are an essential component to a liberal arts education and are an invaluable part of our wonderful school.

    The energy and commitment our student musicians brought to their performance was impressive. Both ensembles are flourishing under the direction of Tim Heasley and a talented support team. Thanks Tim!

    Bakersfield College provides a richer education because of the arts.
