Welcome to the East Burke Middle School Band Website!

The EBMS band is a very active organization within the school.  Many of our students in the band program also compete in other activities such as sports, Battle of the Books, Math Counts, Robotics, and many more.  The EBMS band has consistently had large numbers of students to make All County Band and the All District Band for the past four years.   Concert Dates - 2016 - 2017                                                            PARENTS OF 8TH GRADE BAND STUDENTS :
