Welcome to the Broughton Band!!
We're so glad you've joined the Broughton Band family! You've joined a wonderful community that will no doubt offer you many extraordinary opportunities throughout your high school career. There are many great traditions that are unique and special at Broughton that you will inherit and carry with you long after you graduate.
Our band is nationally and internationally known. Most recently, the band performed at the 2014 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta. This was a huge honor to represent North Carolina, and we were one of only a few high school bands who were invited. While in Atlanta, we also competed in a concert band competition and won first place!
Our band is one of the largest student groups on campus. Our concert bands and marching band performs throughout the state, our jazz band is in demand throughout our community and is a highlight of many of our student events. Our drumline has become a staple at the football games—the student section loves when they come out to perform! We also have a competitive Winter Guard group that performs during the 2nd semester.
The Broughton Band is the only band to march in every Raleigh Christmas Parade! We have students that participate in All District Concert Band, All Region Jazz Band, and All State Band. Many of our students perform outside of Broughton in groups like the Triangle Youth Wind Ensemble, Triangle Youth Jazz Band and the Triangle Youth Brass Band. As you can see, we have a strong tradition of excellence that we hope you will want to help us continue.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the band office, or email me anytime (email is the best way to reach me due to our busy schedule!!).
I look forward to working with you in the fall!
