Bellefonte Area High School Marching Band
The BAHS Marching Band is an extracurricular ensemble consisting of woodwinds, brass, percussion, and Band Front (majorettes, dance team, and silks). Rehearsals will begin with a four-day Mini-Band Camp in mid-June, plus other rehearsals during the weeks of parades. Band Front & Percussion members will meet for weekly rehearsals over the summer (the summer schedule for 2019 can be found by following the link, and can also be found via the link in the sidebar!).
When school begins, Marching Band rehearses on Tuesdays/Thursdays from 6:30-8pm.
The theme for the 2019 Field Show is FANTASTIC FANTASY, featuring music from Star Wars, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and The Lord of the Rings! Click the link to see a video of one of our performances of the 2018 Field Show, The Might of Rome.
