Batavia Marching Band
The Batavia Marching Band (BMB) is a volunteer group that involves 120 students of the Batavia High School band program. BMB rehearses three times a week during the school year, competes in five contests, and performs at every home football game. Students can perform in the wind section (brass and woodwinds), the percussion section, or the color guard. All students are accepted...there is no bench and there are no cuts in marching band!

This year the band will perform a full schedule as well as perform for the first time at a Bands of America Regional in Indianapolis, IN.
Please note: the rehearsal schedule is tentative until we receive full confirmation of turf time from BHS Athletics.
However, the schedule is the best we can do as of this moment.
To sign up, please print off the contract form and return it with full payment or deposit to Mr. Owen at BHS as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. If you want to be in marching band, we will make it work for you!
BHS SHOW 2017 - unBALANCED
Life is a balance between what we can control and what we cannot; what we can do and what we cannot. We must always be aware of ourselves to know when we need the support of others as we search for true balance.
The 2017 BHS production maps this journey.
On the surface, the show begins with the struggle to stand and ends with strength and support. On a deeper level, we will be exploring new musical challenges and many new ways of using our bodies while performing. Our props will allow us to climb above the ground, support each other from afar, and allow us to explore many new ways of interacting with our music beyond marching drill.
The show starts with us in many states of unbalance. As the program develops we work to strengthen ourselves and learn to stand on our own but realize sometimes we cannot do it alone. We begin to support each other and realize that our strength comes with unity and we are only truly able to stand on our own only when we stand together.
