Bonita Vista High School Music Machine
European Festival Tour
July 4-22, 1983
For three weeks during the summer of 1983, the BVHS Music Machine, led by its director Ron Bolles and his wife and choreographer, Reina, embarked on a tour of music festivals throughout Europe. This tour marked the first time that any U.S. Show Choir had ever been invited to perform as a part of the European festivals.
The tour was documented on video tape with copies of the recordings being distributed to only a handful of participants. The original masters were lost over the years, but in 2012, nearly 30 years after the tour, the video has been restored from one of those VHS copies. This restored version is available here for viewing or download.
If you were part of the 1983 BVHS Music Machine European Festival Tour, this video will bring back some treasured memories. If you were a Machine member during any of the years when Ron and Reina were at the helm, this video will be an interesting view into the history of the Bonita Vista High School Music Machine.
