The Barrington Middle School band department offers students the opportunity to participate in an instrumental program dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in music through performance.
While band is a graded class that meets during the school day, there are additional outlets in which experienced musicians can express themselves and use their talents. The band program offers Jazz Band and Pep Band as after school music activities.
The Jazz Band is a select group of approximately 20-25 musicians chosen by audition which plays a variety of repertoire. The ensemble is comprised of saxes, trumpets, trombones and a rhythm section. Performances include the BHS Jazz Festival as well as gigs here at Prairie. See Mrs. Byte's web-page for detailed information and rehearsal schedules.
The Pep Band plays for Prairie home basketball games during December and is open to all interested band members.
