The Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School Band Directors, Ashlen Udell, the 8th Grade Director,  and Barron Caromono, the 7th Grade Director, sponsored 13 of their students at the Central Jersey Music Educators Association Middle School Honor Band Day. 


This prestigious event by the CJMEA was held on Saturday, March 23, at East Brunswick High School.
