You don't have to go to BC to be in the Band!

The Boston College Marching Band’s Partner School Program allows members of Boston-area schools that do not have comparable programs to participate in the organization. Students from Berklee, Emerson, Emmanuel, Lasell, Northeastern, Suffolk, Wentworth, and others have the opportunity to perform on a national stage and be an integral part of a Division I football program. Over the past two decades, nearly 100 non-BC students have participated in this program, forming a continuous Band community that stretches across Boston. Partner School members participate in all Marching Band events and are provided with either MBTA passes or parking vouchers during the Marching Band season. If you have questions, we can connect you with a Partner School member! Just email bands@bc.edu for more information.
