Extracurricular marching band description:
Season and "training" starts with band camp in late August. The band performs at all home varsity football games and it is a choice to go to away games. You meet a lot of new people and almost develop a "family" atmosphere with the people in the band. The band attends the M.S.B.O.A. festival and also attend various holiday parades and events.
**Attendance at all performances and practices is required**
Marching Band Uniform Return is Thursday, May 11, 2017 @ 7pm

Parents - Join the Cousino Band Boosters
As a member of one of the finest band programs in the State of Michigan, we encourage all of the students
and parents to “get involved” with all aspects of the program. Parents are encouraged to join the Cousino
Band Boosters, participate in monthly meetings, and especially the many band activities that are offered
throughout the school year.
The primary purpose of the Cousino Band Boosters is to support the entire award-winning band program that consists of the Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band and Marching Band. We provide various services such as:
Chaperone duties (whenever necessary!)
Distribute and collect Marching & Concert Uniforms
Prepare lunches for Marching Band camp
Pit crew at football games (assist with the moving of equipment)
Fund a music scholarship program and private lesson scholarships
Financially support additional Marching Band Camp staff
Financially support clinicians prior to Band/Orchestra Festival
Maintain a website - /cousino-bands
In the past, we have provided items such as:
Drum Major Summer Camp
Drum Major ladders
Uniform racks and garment bags
Auxiliary percussion instruments
Electric Golf Cart for the Marching Band
In addition, the Cousino Band Boosters provide fundraising opportunities to support the band program. In order to maintain the level of support mentioned above, funds are needed for the general account, thus we do charge a nominal membership fee of $5.00 per family. By becoming a "Band Booster Family" you will enable us to continue to provide some of the "extras" not budgeted by Warren Consolidated Schools.
Be sure to visit for all important dates, activities, fundraisers, and meetings. Your membership fee will benefit our First Class kids and Band Program!!
