About

The Bethel-Tate Band program consists of marching band, concert band, and color guard. The marching band and color guard begin their demanding schedule with band camp in July and generally rehearse and perform from August through early November. The Bethel-Tate Band is modeled after festival style bands such as the University of Cincinnati Marching Band and the Ohio University Marching 110. Concert Band performs year round and members regularly participate in OMEA adjudicated events including Solo and Ensemble and Large Group, as well as local honor bands. The bands and all appear at school and community functions throughout the year. The bands perform under the direction of Mr. Samuel Blair at the high school, and Mr. Paul Glader at the middle school.
