MARCHING BAND

The Brookfield Central High School Marching Band is a non-competitive ensemble. 


All BC students in band are in marching band. We meet for a summer marching band camp in August and one evening a week throughout the fall. 


We perform pregame and halftime at home football games and march in two parades a year.

PARENTS

To keep our band program strong, we need as much parent help as possible. We rely on fantastic parent support each and every year. The following are a few areas in which we can always use help with: Uniforms, Concessions (home football games), Fall Fundraisers, Chili Feed (Homecoming Game), our Bebop event in June, and Band Banquet.

Please email the director for more information on the organizations that help the band!
