The Elgin Bands need your help to get a new set of chimes to help both the middle school and high school percussion students get this necessary and commonly used percussion instrument. This band program consists of approximately 250 students in grades 5th through 12th. This program also servers a vital role in the school and community through music education. With our continued growth as a school and band program, the needs of the band grow by the day. They have two band room that see over 250 students each day come through the doors to participate in instrumental music education. The use of quality instruments not only creates a quality music performance, but it gives students an accurate representation of their performing abilities. Currently the band only has one very old set of chimes that is showing its age.
