This ensemble is an ALL-DISTRICT Marching band that rehearses during the summer. Brighton students can earn credit by participating in this ensemble. This group performs in several parades with students from all over in Canyons School District.


Who can be involved?
This opportunity is open to 7-12th graders at all MS and HS in Canyons District.

Wind players: are invited to march if they have been playing for a year (at least).

Percussionists: are invited to come to our drum camp to audition for the drumline.

Other: If you know of a student who would benefit from getting involved, get them involved in colorguard (orchestra parents, I’m looking at you).

Come to the meeting! We will go into much more detail. If you have a more pressing question, feel free to email Ms. Mortensen or Mr. Shabestari.


MEGA BAND COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the uncertainty with early summer plans being changed and some parades being cancelled (more anticipated), Ms. Mortensen (Brighton) and Mr. Shabestari (Alta) have decided it best to cancel MEGA BAND Activities for the 2020 summer.


This means 8th graders and younger will be unable to participate in the summer parades with the MEGA BAND. That being said, Fall Marching Band events are still taking place. So if you are 9-12 grade next year, please read the info below and  attend our DIGITAL meeting on APRIL 22nd!   


If your child is an 7th-8th grader and is devastated by this news, they are more than welcome to come participate in the Friday night football games in the fall. Reach out to Ms. Mortensen for more information.
