The Brooklyn Instrumental Music Department

The Brooklyn Instrumental Music Department has a 70 year tradition of Pride and Excellence. 

Founded in 1947 by John S. Phillips, the Brooklyn Hurricane Marching Band has grown through the years from a band of only 34 students into the largest and most successful student organization in the school district.  With nearly 100 members, the marching band performs at halftime for every Friday night football game and throughout Northeast Ohio at various  festivals, parades and special events.  The members of the Brooklyn High School Marching Band have had the opportunity to perform at the Medina Band Show, the Lakewood Band Show, the Parma Band show, the American Greetings International Convention,  and Kickin' It With Kenny as the FOX8 Band of the Week.  They were the guest performer for the Baldwin Wallace College and Cleveland State University Homecoming festivities.  They also took the field for a featured performance with the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field and out on center court in two unforgettable shows for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they made their 2016 and 2017 championship runs.   In June of 2016, the instrumental music department travelled west for the first time as they visited the Windy City, Chicago, Illinois.  Most recently this past June, members of the Marching Band performed on Main Street, Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida for Walt Disney's Magic Music Days Festival of Fantasy Parade.
