UPDATE: Support the Tradition • Renew the Pride Capital Campaign
The Beavercreek High School Band and Color Guard is proud to announce the successful completion of its latest capital campaign. The goal of this campaign was to replace and augment the marching band uniforms, purchase additional instruments and replace both a 43 year old semi-trailer and a 30 year old semi-tractor. In 2017 we were able to refurbish a (new to us) trailer and for the 2018 season the Marching Band debuted new uniforms. We are proud to announce the final piece has been completed with the purchase and restoration of a 2015 semi-tractor.
The staff, students and families of the Beavercreek High School Marching Band and Color Guard want to thank all the donors and sponsors who made this campaign a success. It could not have been done without the support of Carl’s Body Shop, City Electric Supply and the Dayton Moose Lodge #73 as lead donors. It is also important to recognize the countless hours volunteers spent in each phase who helped maximize the impact of every dollar raised.
In the last six years participation in the Pride of Beavercreek BHS Marching Band and Color Guard has grown more than 50% from 180 to over 320 members, making this group the largest extracurricular program at Beavercreek High School. In conjunction with this capital campaign, on April 10, 2018 the Wright State Nutter Center hosted more than 1,000 Beavercreek City School students performing in the All District Band Concert.
The Beavercreek High School Band program includes numerous award-winning groups including winter guards, indoor percussion, jazz bands, six concert bands, pep band and various small ensembles. Join us at our next concert February 20th. For more information go to www.beavercreekband.org
Our next major event is the 19th annual Weekend of Jazz. Special EFX All Stars and The Eastman New Jazz Ensemble will headline this public event March 1-2, 2019. Tickets and more information are available at www.weekendofjazz.org
With great success comes great challenges. The cost of music, instruments, uniforms, and equipment for a growing extracurricular music program continues to increase while directors work hard to keep fees affordable for all students the fundraising continues.
