Be a Part of the Band

The band is one of the largest student organizations at BGHS and there's a reason for that. We strive to create an atmosphere where everyone is welcome and because of that the band really is a family. The band truly is unique in that many individuals come together to create something bigger, more impressive, and more awesome than they ever could on their own.

 

In making music, we get to share our passion and artistry with large audiences, whether it's at a football game on Friday night, a concert in Vienna, Austria, or a jazz gig with pro musicians. You will get to share the JOY of music with thousands of people every year. 

If you are looking for an activity that will be fun, challenging you to be a better musician and person, as well as teach you lessons that will benefit you for the rest of your life, join the band.

There is no experience necessary, only the willingness to learn an instrument or a flag, become a musician, and grow as a person. It doesn't matter if you haven't played in years either. Come one and come all to this great music-making experience!

Not enough space in your schedule? No worries, we have several creative ways to make band "fit. Ask any of our students who are in multiple AP and honors classes, several activities and sports and still manage to be very successful in the band. 

Contact Mr. Kappler today about how to sign up for band at BGHS.
