The purpose of the Band Program at Belle Chasse High School is to serve as a creative outlet for all students who wish to learn, practice, and perform music. At the same time, the band program gives back to the school through public performances both in the school and the community.
The Cardinal Band has provided entertainment for all types of events throughout its history. In just the past 10 years, the Band has been featured at school sporting events, local festivals including the Plaquemines Parish Orange Festival and the Gretna Heritage Festival, local parish and Mardi Gras parades, Grand Opening events, and many others. We have also performed for more serious events including military retirement ceremonies and funerals.
Many young men and women have come up through the ranks of the band program at Belle Chasse High School over the years. Some have continued on to become professional musicians and music educators, and many have chosen other paths in life. No matter where these members find themselves in life, they will always carry with them the discipline, work ethic, and attention to detail they learned in their years as part of our band family.
