Fourth of July Parade Info

I hope your summer vacation is going well!


It's time to think about the Berrien Springs 4th of July Parade!


This parade is NOT required - but if you are in the area, we would love to have you play with us. We will rehearse in the HS Band Room on July 3rd from 6:30-7:30pm. Please use the band room back door (A12). The music is the same that we played for Memorial Day - Grand Old Flag.


Itinerary for July 4th:

2:45-3:10pm - Band Room Open for instrument retrieval

3:25pm - All performers report to the August Pohl Auto Parts parking lot

4:00pm - Parade starts

5:00pm - Done & bussed back to BSHS


Here is a link to the music. Please pick your part and practice before July 3rd. I will have paper copies available for your flip folios on the 3rd. Please feel free to share the link with anyone who is interested in playing!


We have extra instruments and flip folios for alumni or community members to use. If you are interested in participating in the color guard for this parade, we will go over the routine on the 3rd. Even if you haven't touched an instrument or flag in a long time, we can work with you! Please join us!

Korn Dog Booth Information

It's time to think about the Berrien County Youth Fair and The Korn Dog booth! This is the perfect opportunity to earn money for your students' band account and this opportunity is available to Middle School families as well as High School families. The money can be used to pay for band camp, new Drill Masters (marching shoes), field trips the band takes, just about anything you can think of! Workers need to be 18 years old BUT a 16 or 17 year old can work IF the parent/guardian works the same shift with them. You can also have grandparents, aunts, uncles or family friends work for your student.
