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 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.  In the summer of 2018, members of the Marching Band performed on Main Street at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida for Walt Disney's Magic Music Days Festival of Fantasy Parade.  This Spring the Instrumental Music Department is preparing for another outstanding musical experience as they visit one of the major centers for the performing arts in the United States, New York City.

Parents,

Your hard work and sacrifice does not go unnoticed.  The 4 month commitment that is Brooklyn High School Marching Band would not be possible without the parent volunteers from the Brooklyn Music Booster Organization.  The directors, student leaders and Hurricane Marching Band members  could not thank you enough for all that you do.  From the hot days of July to the cold evenings in October, you've been with us every step of the way.  Thank you for your time, dedication and energy to assist in making your child's experience an awesome one.  

 

Musically,
