The Bengal marching band has reached 92 members this school year, including the new Color Guard, which marches alongside the band in all fall performances.
“The high number of members shows how much the passion for band has increased,” said Brendan Burns, band director. “When there are more people the band looks and plays better. It’s always more fun the more people there are.”
Upcoming performances for the groups include:
• LHS Homecoming game, 7 p.m., Sept. 29, Bengal Field, Lewiston
• University of Idaho Homecoming parade, 9 a.m., Oct. 7, Moscow
• Senior Night Football Game, 7 p.m., Oct. 20, Bengal Field, Lewiston
• Marching Band Championships, Oct. 28, Washington State University, Pullman
Students will perform in the LHS Fall Concert Oct. 24, according to Burns.
The marching band will perform its show called “Fusion” this year at the second and
third football games as well as in marching band competition.
Outside of marching band, the music department has two jazz bands again this year.
“They just keep getting better and better,” Burns said.
Jazz band members are looking forward to their festival in the spring and their big dance fundraiser in late April.
