Under the direction of Damon Coachman, the BHS Marching Band pushes limits and breaks boundaries, going beyond their comfort zone to perform with excellence. Their marching formations and in-synch movements show how well they work together as a team. The drum line has even added a little bit of dancing to their performance, getting loose on the field.

On October 29th the band and color guard will compete in M.A.C. competition at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, CT. The USSBA New England Championships is in Bridgeport on Sat. Nov. 5th. Bethel will compete, along with 38 other bands. Gate time 10 a.m. and the BHS performance time has not yet been posted.
