his is your chance to speak now or forever hold your peace :)
"No one can resist the lure of “The House”. Great opportunities for characterization. “Beware of drummers that go bump in the night!”
“The main idea of the show is the concept of staying connected. So often we think of that in the context of cell phones and internet, but it also applies to the bigger concept of connecting as a family, community, or country.”

The annual Brown and Gold Brigade Lock In wrapped up at 7am this morning...and my oh my was it a great time! Check out the pictures in the Photo Gallery...lots of good kids having a great time. It was truly a memorable and educational evening...did you know Canada was America's hat? Just one of many nuggets of wisdom and laughter shared by some wonderful kids last night! Now that everyone is relaxed and its time to start thinking about Lodi. Next Saturday the 5th s the Lodi Band review...let's beat our scores at the last review and bring back the gold!
The Parade Competition, Concert Competition and the Jazz Competition are held in the morning on or around the Tokay High School campus.
There is no admission charge to watch the events in the morning at Tokay High School. The Awards presentation for the morning events are held early in the afternoon and there is no cost for admission charge to attend this Awards presentation.
Welcome to another exciting year in the Brown & Gold Brigade – Band, Guard and related activities. The school year will again see more students in the marching band – hopefully we will produce an outstanding competitive and successful educational product for all the students involved.
The Yuba City Unified School District has always provided an excellent total music package for its constituency, offering experiences from wonderful teachers in the classroom and through the elementary and middle school music program. We are fortunate to have well-rounded students sign up to further pursue and develop their musical skills and experiences. The students in music at Yuba City earn and maintain very high GPA’s and learn musical, personal, and life skills in this program.
All of us on staff recognize and appreciate the support of the parents – we need your help for all four years of your child’s participation by being there, assisting through active participation in fundraising, and project chairs. You will never know how much you miss if you do not “belong” to the Brown & Gold Brigade and all its activities.
We welcome your children, you, and your family to the biggest SPIRIT TEAM on campus the Yuba City High School Brown & Gold Brigade Family.
