The Otsego Bulldog Marching Band is a curricular class offered 1st Trimester combined with either Concert or Symphonic Band for 2nd and 3rd Trimester - to fulfill the “entire year” class commitment. The Marching Band has required practices in 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, participating in the West Michigan Scholastic MB Circuit. The group performs in select local parades, OHS Varsity Football games, and Pep Assemblies. Other performances may be added depending on the need. One of our goals is to be the heartbeat of the school when the community comes together for athletic events!
