Major Projects/Assignments: The Jazz Ensemble performs outside of class throughout the school year, including but not limited to CMEA (and/or comparable) Festivals. Participation in all performances is mandatory. Jazz Ensemble students are also part of the BHS Panther Band (Pep/Marching Band) which performs at various school and community events.
All students in jazz ensemble, concert band, and wind ensemble are automatically included in the Marching Band. We perform two halftime field shows at football games and march in several community parades every year.
Course Description: Marching Band is not a separate course. It is a joint activity that brings together all members of the different Band courses for performances.
