Bethlehem Catholic Purpose. Passion. Pride Bethlehem Catholic


Beca Band Logo FINAL

Billy Joel once said, “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an expression of humanity … something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” In the Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawk Band, we believe this statement to be true and we make it our mission to spread this love of music at each of our performances. As members of the band, we reflect the Bethlehem Catholic principles of hard work, unity and faith in all we do.

Even after the last football game, the band stays busy, preparing for our Christmas concert in December. Admission is free, and it’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit. In the new year, we begin preparing for our spring concert and competition trip. Each spring, our marching, concert, and jazz bands travel to compete against other competitive high school music programs.

As you can see, the Golden Hawk Band is a great organization with which to be involved. If you are interested in supporting the band, or would like to receive more information about joining, check out our website found HERE. Please feel free to call the band room at 610-866-0791 ext. 320 or send an email to Mr. Christopher Klump at .

We hope to see you out cheering for the award-winning Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawk Band or enjoying one of our many concerts during the school year.

Band Front

The band front is an important part of the band program. Various equipment such as flags, batons, hoops, ribbons, and rifles are used to add color to our performances. Anyone can join the band front as long as they are prepared to work hard and have fun! Although no experience is necessary, members should be prepared to learn how to perform with confidence and personality.  Band front rehearses with the instrumentalists during band camp and during the scheduled band period within the school day.  The band front can be seen performing with the marching band in the fall semester and again at the Christmas and spring concerts.  If they play an instrument, band front members also have the opportunity to share their time in band as an instrumentalist.

For more information on the Band Front, please contact Mr. Christopher Klump at
