BHS Instrumental Music & Color Guard
Bonita High School Instrumental Music and Color Guard Program
Born on athletic fields across the nation and founded in the tradition of military and outdoor pageantry, marching bands and color guards have a long history in America. Often rehearsing nine hours a day through heat, cold, dust and rain, they create thrilling performances where athleticism, musical talent, kaleidoscopic movement, and showmanship merge into an art form that is both competitive and entertaining.
The Bonita High School Instrumental Music and Color Guard Program is steeped in performance traditions and includes distinct seasons for Marching Band, Drumline, Color Guard, Jazz Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Band. We would like to invite you to experience and share in the excitement and joy of our program.
For over 20 years, Mr. Jeff Bird has taught music and 17 years of it has been at Bonita High School. Mr. Bird was raised in Lockport, NY, got his BMusEd Degree from the College of Wooster, OH and his MMA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Besides teaching instrumental music, Mr. Bird also teaches History of Rock n’ Roll and AP Music Theory.
2021 Field Show Performances
The shows that our groups perform demand many levels of financial support for staffing, design, props, costuming, equipment, transportation, and operational expenses. The support we receive from our business community and citizens makes a tremendous difference in our ability to provide the tremendously talented music students in the Bonita District with the opportunity to excel at their craft.
