About the Marching Band Program
The Marching Band is Brookville High School’s outdoor performance ensemble, performing the half-time program at all home football games as well as marching band competitions across the state of Virginia.
Marching Band provides a “family” to which all band students can belong. It’s a place where they learn important life lessons like responsibility, doing their fair share, and sticking to a common goal. They learn to value and respect their peers, their staff, and the program they work so hard for.
The first official marching band competition is Brookville’s own Blue Ridge Festival of Bands (BRFB) early in the season, followed by other local, state, and regional competitions like the Lynchburg Classic, the Charlottesville High School Cavalcade, and the VBODA marching assessment.

Band Camp Information
Marching Band Camp is the “official” kick-off to the Marching Band Season. While there are summer rehearsals that take place prior to Band Camp that students are expected to attend if they are in town, Band Camp is the first mandatory set of rehearsals, and all members are required to be in attendance.
The official Marching Band Camp dates for 2017/18 are as follows:
July 24, 2017, to July 28, 2017 (8am – 6pm)
July 31, 2017, to August 4, 2017 (8am – 6pm)
August 7, 2017 (1pm – 6pm)
August 8, 2017 (1pm – 6pm)
August 11, 2017 (1pm – 6pm)
Students will receive one hour for lunch, and should be prepared with a packed meal or money for lunch off-site. Parents may also deliver lunch for their students.
Students should also be prepared to face the summer heat. Our staff suggests spending time outdoors pre-Band Camp to get used to the summer temperatures. It is also suggested to wear heat-appropriate clothing. T-shirts, tank tops, and lightweight/athletic wicking materials will help keep your student cool during the hotter times of the day. In addition, students should also wear shorts and closed-toed athletic shoes/tennis shoes with socks. Having an extra shirt and pair of socks in the duffel bag is always a good idea.
