  • 5 days of Band Camp (August 2nd through August 6th)
    Athletics officially begin the week after band camp (as regulated by MHSAA), so band camp is traditionally the week prior to athletics.

  • Only 6 Tuesday evening rehearsals spread throughout September and October (when school is in session)
    Returning members: Please note that High School Band rehearsals will move to Tuesday evenings next school year for more frequent access to the turf field and the avoidance of soccer games.  However, Jazz Band rehearsals will remain on Monday evenings for those select members beginning at the conclusion of the regular football season.
