Band at Saint Thomas Aquinas

Welcome to band at STA!  The Saints Brigade Band meets during 2nd hour and is open to all students, grades 9-12.  We play at the home football and basketball games, and travel with the teams if they make it to post-season play!  As a concert band, we perform three concerts, in addition to participating in the state large group festival in the Spring.  Every four years we travel to Orlando, Florida and HAVE A GREAT TIME!  Students in 2nd hour band also have the opportunity to participate in the Saints Brigade Drumline.   The drumline performs at school games and events throughout the year.  Our jazz band, the STA Jazz Express, meets during 0 hour (7:15 - 7:45 AM) and is open to all students, grades 9-12 by audition/director approval.  The Express is a featured ensemble at the annual Extravaganza.  For more information on the jazz band, please click the "STA Jazz Express" link to the right.  Please feel free to contact Mr. Burgess ( if you have any questions about band at STA.  We look forward to meeting you.  Enjoy the "Saints Band" video below!
