Research has found that students enrolled in music and Band programs are more academically successful and value many social opportunities and experiences for success in school. We offer a comprehensive Band program at Colonel Irvine. Our students perform exceptionally well at concerts and performances including the Kiwanis Music Festival. Although Band is a course for some and an option for others, offered during the day, the nature of the program involves lunch or after school practices as well as a commitment to evening performances such as the Winter and Spring Concerts and participation in the Festival performances.

Due to the progression of the Band program from year to year, students interested should choose band in their early years of school at Colonel Irvine, grades 5 or 7. Entering later is extremely difficult and is only done with the permission of the Band teacher.
