The Forest Park Marching Bruin Band
PLEASE NOTE: The spread of COVID-19 has greatly impacted 2020 Fall extracurricular activities and there are multiple scenarios with varying levels of student participation that could occur moving forward. All of the information and scheduling in the handbook is tentative and subject to change. It is extremely important that you and your student stay in contact with the appropriate updates. No matter the outcome of the Fall, the Bruin Band Leadership, Boosters and Staff are extremely passionate about making our 2020 marching season the most engaging and inspiring to date. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
The Marching Bruin Band is an extension of the band curriculum at Forest Park High School. This ensemble grants students an opportunity to experience the marching arts and perform many different exciting mediums of music. Our marching band consists of members from the band, orchestra, and choir, and offers non-musicians the opportunity to participate through our color guard. All members of our ensemble add to our overall performance and every member is essential to the success of the production. Members of the Marching Bruin Band receive ½ credit on their transcript.
If you are a returning marcher interested in joining back on for our 2020 season, please check below to view the MBB 2020 Handbook, fill out the required forms and get all the information you’ll need on the state of the marching season during the pandemic.
