Band & Orchestra


BMHS students perform at the Prince George's County Festival

The Band program at Bishop McNamara High School has a reputation for excellence throughout the metropolitan Washington, DC area. The study of instrumental music is an important component to providing the students with a comprehensive music education. The students in the BMHS band program are consistently challenged to cultivate their individual talents and abilities all while building relationships through group performance.

It is the goal of our Band and Orchestra Program to foster a sense of belonging, artistic expression, aesthetic awareness, and an overall appreciation for music.


Upcoming Events

As the school year comes to a close, we celebrate another year of student success within the BMHS community and beyond; from the Solo & Ensemble Festival, and Honor Band and Orchestra, to the stellar performances at this year's Music Trip to compete in South Carolina. 

Check back at the beginning of next school year for performance and concert dates.
