The band program at PCHS is comprised of multiple ensembles including concert band, jazz band, pep band, and the Marching Panthers. Our mission is to provide comprehensive music education for all band students and give them the opportunities necessary to grow as students and musicians. We perform throughout the year. Starting in the Fall the Marching Panthers perform at home football games and various marching band festivals in Southern Illinois, as well as hosting our own Mardi Gras Festival at the end of October. Our Pep Band performs at home basketball games and our Concert Band and Jazz Band perform throughout the school year.

The Mardi Gras Marching Band Festival will be held this year on Saturday, October 27th. The application for competing bands can be downloaded below. If you have any questions or need more information please contact Joel Kirby at jkirby@pchspanthers.com or 618-357-5013 Ext: 312
