The other day when in the Band Room I noticed a poster that declared that "BAND IS A FAMILY." Having had the privilege of being at the three Finale Concerts held last week, I witnessed this Family pull together to bring their best to our community! To hear alumni from the Class of 2023, members of the Class of 2024, and the 7th and 8th graders show us hope, acceptance, and how "The Light Shines Through" under the direction of Jennifer Evans was profound. The remainder of the concert demonstrated how well prepared the SMS Band Family is. The Concert and Jazz Bands and Symphony Winds reminded us how much fun our Family has together with lively selections of music that unites generations. Wind Ensemble honored Director Gabrielle Hoffman in a moving performance that rendered even her speechless! Jazz Band and Drumline shared their talents and energy to support the Senior Survivor fundraiser by performing at The Amp on Friday night as well. This Family does so much for our community! Kudos to all on the amazing performances that showcased their passion for music!

Welcome! 

The Brighton Band Boosters is a non-profit organization of parents and care-givers dedicated to working in partnership with our Band Directors to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our band students. We support all aspects of the band including the marching band, drumline, and color guard, as well as the multiple concert bands at all three schools.

The Boosters are run by a board of volunteers elected by our members each year. We provide all band parents and guardians the opportunity to actively support our amazing band programs by helping with things such as chaperoning events and student socials, helping to move band equipment and distributing uniforms, assisting with concert publicity, fundraising, and more. Our goal is to keep things running smoothly so the band directors can focus on the students and the music. Our fundraising efforts, most notably the sale of concessions during BAS sporting events, provide valuable financial support to the bands.

The Boosters meet once a month. Meetings are open to parents and care-givers from BHS, Scranton and Maltby and include information concerning the future of the band programs, upcoming events, and areas of concern or need. Throughout the year you will receive email newsletters from the Boosters with event updates and volunteer opportunities. To learn more about how you can contribute to the on-going success of our band programs please contact the Booster President JuliAnne Diesch or attend one of our upcoming meetings.
