Sangamon Valley

Storm Bands

Welcome to Band

Sangamon Valley schools are home to a comprehensive eight-year band program that aims to train outstanding instrumental musicians and give students a creative outlet as part of every school day.

We have hard-working students in each of our ensembles, and offer the following levels of study:

In addition to our core concert and marching band class, high school students are also offered extra performance opportunities such as honor bands, solo/ensemble contest, and private lessons.

Together with director, students, and parents, we work to develop teamwork, excellence, and pride in the SV Band Program!


Marching Season 2019

This fall, the Marching Storm will present the 2019 halftime show entitled "Tim Burton Takes the Field"! This exciting show will feature music by film composer Danny Elfman from films such as Batman, Sleepy Hollow, Beetlejuice, and the Nightmare Before Christmas.
