All Band Students participate in Marching Band and Concert Band

Marching Band goes from the beginning of school until after the last home football game. Usually there are 4-5 Home game performances, A Homecoming Parade with the RBMS Band, various Community Pep Rallies, and three Parade Competitions.

Concert Band begins sometime before the marching season is entirely over. The Concert Band will perform for Veteran's Day, A Holiday Concert, A Winter Concert with the combined 5-12 Eagle Grove Band students, Large Group Contest hosted by the IHSMA, A Spring Concert with the EGHS Choir, Graduation, and Memorial Day. Occasionally, additional opportunities to perform may arise.

Pep Band practices and performs for the duration of the EGHS Basketball season, usually late November, until some time in February. Our students have a solid repertoire of nearly 40 songs to get the crowd rocking. The Pep Band attends nearly all home games, with some exceptions being made for multiple games during a week. The band also performs at school pep rallies, and when requested in the community.

Las Aguilas del Swing is the EGHS Jazz Combo consisting of a small group of horn players and rhythm section, dedicating themselves to learning a wide array of tunes, and making improvisation a priority. Las Aguilas is always looking for performance venues, and we would be happy to discuss playing for your event.

All students participate in at least one small ensemble or Chamber group.

It's important to remember that all of our musicians are students first. We take our academic responsibilities seriously, and pride ourselves on our performance. Some continue on to do music in college and throughout their life, and some may never touch an instrument after high school. Everyone on the staff at EGHS understands the dedication it takes for every student that decides to be a part of something extra.

 Do your part in the community, support the Arts in Eagle Grove, and encourage everyone to back the Eagles.
