     The Berne Union Band Program has a long and storied history that dates back to when Berne Union High School was formed in 1930. Like most band programs we enbrace our history and traditions and great importance is placed on not only maintaining those traditions, but also living up to the high performance standards that the many fine directors and students before us have established. If you are a former member of the Berne Union Band Program visiting this site for the first time we hope you take some time to look around and see what the band has been up to in recent years. If you would like to be informed about alumni events, please Email Erin Ramsey.

      There are many links located below, including a list of past directors, archive pictures, sounds, and video, and even a web page that traces the evolution of BUGRMB's uniform. If you have any comments or suggestions about this page, or the site in general, please Email JD Latorre. A special thanks goes out to Patrick Long ('81), Jerry Primmer ('59), and Jim Stoner ('62) for providing content and information for this page. Mary Jean Goss and the BU High School Media Center also contributed greatly to the content you see on this page.
