Students can join the St. John the Baptist Catholic School band program beginning in the 6th grade; they can continue to participate in 7th and 8th grade if they choose. Band class is offered during the school day, and students perform in a Christmas concert at St. John the Baptist as well as a spring concert held at Memorial High School (alongside students from all six of Memorial’s partner schools).

They can also choose to participate in the Memorial High School Mega Band and the ISSMA solo competition. For more information please contact Mrs. Mary Buedel.
