The Broad Ford Elementary School "Blazing Bobcats" Orff Ensemble recently traveled to Hagerstown to perform at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.  The group was invited by the Maryland State Department of Education to perform at the MSDE Regional Fine Arts Briefing, held at the museum. 
 
The 4th and 5th grade musicians rehearse every Wednesday after school with their music teachers, Laura Dahlen and Heather Roth. The group was founded in 2015 through donations from Samantha Funding the Arts, the family of Tim Hardesty, Landon's Library, and continued support from the Garrett County Board of Education. Although the ensemble has performed at several events in and around Oakland, this was their first performance outside of Garrett County.
