Welcome Parents and Students

Welcome to another exciting year of music! Brighton High School is home to one of the finest band programs in the State of Michigan. Under the direction of Ms. Gabrielle Hoffman, the band boasts a decades-long tradition of outstanding performances.

The high school band year kicks off with Marching season directed by Ms. Hoffman, with assistance from Mrs. Jennifer Evans, Scranton music director, and Mr. Michael Osborn, Maltby music director. The Marching 200's half-time shows dazzle football fans with music that drifts across the field and resounds through the streets of Brighton. The color guard's grace and dazzling displays captivate fans while the twirlers perform amazing feats and the drumline has everyone feeling the beat.
Following marching season, the band transitions to concert season. Our high school bands are: Concert Band, Symphony Band, Jazz Band, Wind Symphony, and Wind Ensemble. The bands perform three shows a year: a holiday concert in December, a pre-festival concert around February/March, and a spring concert in May. The school year ends with the Marching Band's participation in the City of Brighton's Memorial Day Parade. 

The success of the high school band program would not be possible without the years of music instruction that begin at Maltby Intermediate and Scranton Middle Schools.  Mrs. Evans and Mr. Osborn work tirelessly to develop young learners into dedicated musicians. The Brighton Band Boosters support the band programs at all three schools and are very proud of their achievements. Please join us at events and concerts throughout the year to enjoy the music performed by students in all of our band programs. 

Go Dogs!
