Program Description:

The Bengal Band places strong emphasis on individual musical awareness and enrichment. The Band provides this through giving the students opportunities to perform in various settings. The Band offers students various levels of music literature which is both engaging and challenging. The Band has been and will remain an active part of campus life and overall spirit!

The Band continually strives for excellence. Each individual member should develop and mature in character, loyalty, dependability, dedication, leadership and musical skills while substantially contributing to the success of the Band. We seek to enhance each member's school experience, and to provide each member with the best possible music education and band experience. We also strive to help develop character traits that will positively serve those members throughout their lives.
