OTSEGO HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BULLDOGS

The Otsego Bulldog Marching Band is a curricular class offered during the 1st Trimester, combined with either Concert or Symphonic Band for the 2nd and 3rd Trimesters, fulfilling the "entire year" class commitment. The Marching Band has required practices during the summer, evenings, and weekends. Our official season runs from the end of July through the end of October. The Otsego Marching Band is a competing band in the West Michigan Scholastic MB Circuit. The group performs in select local parades, OHS varsity football games, and pep assemblies. Additional performances may be added depending on the need. Our goal is to be an integral part of the school, serving as the heartbeat of the community during athletic events.
