Welcome to the Saint Francis band programs! The Music Department has a long tradition of excellence. For over fifty years there has been a thriving program at Saint Francis, and today we are stronger than ever!

Being in band is a fun and rewarding experience. Many students will testify that being a part of the band program will enhance your overall Saint Francis experience. It's an excellent way to get involved with the community and you will, without a doubt, have the opportunity to create friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

The music program at Saint Francis High School boasts four bands (Concert, Symphonic, Jazz and Marching) as well as a number of small group ensembles. Our bands and choirs achieve great success at local festivals, parades and have the privilege to go on tour every year. The band program has close to 100 students in it each year and continues to grow.

Saint Francis is dedicated to staying on top of current trends and is always looking for ways to encourage more students to get involved with music. We've added several classes to our department to meet the growing demand. In addition to our performing ensembles, the Music Department also includes a Steel Drum/Percussion Ensemble class.

The music department at Saint Francis is open to anyone who wants to continue their musical training or discover new talents. If you are looking for a comprehensive music program where you can participate in a wide variety of ensembles and perform all over the world, the Saint Francis music program is the place for you!
