EPCHS Band History: 1940's


The Decades at a Glance

The band was the only instrumental organization at the high school. The bands scope of activities differed from that of the other musical clubs. During the football season the band performed intricate field drills, like, the "four revolving wheels" and the school letters. The band also played at the basketball games and spring concerts. In 1947, the band appeared in the Armistice Day parade, EPCHS Homecoming Parade, District Contest for solos, Peoria Band Contest, different festivals, and class B contests.
