Applying for Membership in the 2017 BMB

Admission to the BMB is competitive and is limited by our inventory of uniforms and equipment.  The BMB does not have alternates, therefore every person accepted will have a spot in the show.  

A critical component of BMB membership is your ability to commit to the entire performance schedule.
Absense from a performance is not allowed except under extreme circumstances and by advance consent of the director.    

Incoming Music Education students:  Marching band is a required course in your degree program.   You must, however, complete this application to claim your spot.  Once your section is filled you will not have a spot if you have not applied.
