For students who play an instrument in a band or orchestra, or sing in a choir at Ballard High School, March has been both a busy and exciting month. And for teachers and families who guide and support Ballard’s young, accomplished musicians, the word ‘proud’ can’t begin to describe their feelings over the last 30 days.
