Marching Band Memorial Day Parade 5/30
All 2021 band members will be participating in the MEMORIAL DAY PARADE on Memorial Day, May 30th. The event is a lot like the Basilone Parade in September - morning call time, mid-afternoon return time, and the parade itself takes us through the streets of Bradley Gardens. After the parade, we will be treated to some refreshments at the American Legion Post on Old York Road (historically we've been served cold water, hot dogs, and watermelon!).
2022/2023 Marching Band
The preparations for next year's marching band are well under way! Our big Spring recruitment event is scheduled for Thursday June 2 from 6 - 8pm. All current marching band students are required to attend and any prospective students should take this opportunity to try it out!
Student leadership training, offered to any and every prospective band student joining next year's marching band, will be held on the following dates from 2:30 - 3:30:
5/19, 5/24, 5/26, 6/1
The student leadership program is vital to the success of the band and required for any student seeking a formal leadership position in the 2022/2023 marching band. All are welcome!
May Band Parent Association Meeting 5/17
The BPA Meeting for the month of May is scheduled for 7:30pm in the Band Room at BRHS on Tuesday 5/17. It is an important time of year to attend these meetings because agenda items include many of the preparations for next year. Please attend!
Clothing Drive & Car Wash 6/4
Donate your gently used clothing (and more!) at our clothing drive fund raiser in the solar panel parking lot on Saturday 6/4. While you're out for the day, you might as well get that pollen cleaned off your car....so stop by the Field House for a car wash (Basilone Field parking lot area) after dropping off your clothes at the clothing drive! Both the clothing drive and car wash are BRHS Band fundraisers - click here to view the flyer for the day.
We are seeking volunteers and donations too - please see THIS SIGN UP for details and to help!
