    2017 Marching Band Show 



    Scientific and technological advancements are constantly propelling us into new, unforeseen realities.  Like all good things, there must be a limit. Humanity always prevails!

    BHS Band Students receive band messages through the school approved text message service called "Remind.."  It is free. All BHS band members and parents simply text:  @brevard1  to this number:  81010  
    Band fees will be collected at the Band Association Parent Meeting during Band Camp.  The fees that the students pay are only a small percent of what it takes to pay for the music, arrangements, additional instruction ,instruments and repairs. The band fee funds are used all year and are not just for marching band.  We have been asking around and most band fees are well over $500,  The Band Association is challenged to come up with the funding needed to cover the costs of the Band Program.   Thank you for your support and understanding.
