Holly Middle School and High School Bands
The Holly Band Program is one of the premier performing groups in the State of Michigan. Comprised of over 350 members between the high school and middle school, the Holly bands are known for performing around the country at high profile national events and achieving consistent superior scores at festivals and competitions. Over the past three years, the bands have performed at Ford Field in Detroit, the Big House of the University of Michigan, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, and the Tulip Festival Parade in Holland, Michigan. In October of 2014, the band was featured in a half hour documentary on PBS for their performance and preparation of State Band Festival (http://video.wkar.org/video/2365355079/). The Holly Band also performed for the half time show of the 2015 Outback Bowl. This year, the band will be featured in the 2016 National Memorial Day in Washington D.C. and will also be performing at pre game for a Detroit Pistons game this November. Band Directors Ben Baldwin and Brian Smith are very proud of all the band has accomplished this far, and are looking forward to many more successes in the future.
