Cadet Band 

The Cadet Band is the next step in the musical journey for BC Band students. Members meet as a full band each day as a class. Students will transition out of the beginning band books into sheet music, will learn more advanced musical techniques, and explore more about their instruments.

Band members will be expected to practice own their own as part of their classroom grade. Their practicing will be evaluated through weekly playing quizzes. This group may also participate in statewide IMEA Non-Competitive Festival or ISSMA Jr. High Festival in the Spring.

This group is made up of 7th Graders interested in becoming more acquainted with musical instruments. There is no audition for this ensemble, any student who wishes to be a part may sign up. Students who wish to develop their skills further are encouraged to participate in the Jr. High Jazz Band & ISSMA Solo & Ensemble contest. The band performs at the Fall Festival Concert, Winter Concert, ISSMA Jr. High Contest, and the Spring Fine Arts Festival.
