The Screamin’ Eagles Marching Band will feature:

You’ll not only get to perform at home football games in the fall, you’ll also travel to some away games with the team, join in Homecoming week events, and participate in local parades and festivals. And you’ll have the opportunity to be part of the basketball pep band in the spring!

Music (and Football!) at BC
The new marching band has roots in a strong and enthusiastic pep band that started in the early 1990s. The Eagles football team also continues to excel, with an ODAC championship and return to the NCAA Division III playoffs in 2019.
BC has a rich history of musical groups and ensembles. Music ensembles at BC, which include Symphonic Band, Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Strings, Concert Choir, Chorale, and chamber ensembles, are open to students from any major and have always welcomed diverse community of Eagles from all backgrounds and interests. Alumni often enthusiastically return to perform with students at Homecoming, a tradition which will extend to marching band in future years.
