The Collinsville High School Band Program has a strong tradition of excellence in music performance. On a yearly basis, the CHS bands represent Collinsville High School and the communities of Caseyville, Maryville, and Collinsville, through local, statewide, and national performances. The CHS band students rehearse diligently throughout the school year and summer for these performances. Nearly 90% of all band students are involved in more than one performing ensemble. Each May, over half of each graduating class of band students remain involved in music and continue to perform locally or at the collegiate level. Several band students each year decide to make music a career after high school. Through involvement in the band program, students not only improve their musicianship and technique, but also learn life skills such as responsibility, dedication, cooperation, and leadership. This is derived from their individual work towards the betterment of the group.
