About the Band

East High has an outstanding tradition of excellence in vocal and instrumental music. Great music, great concerts, and great friendships combine for great classes. Music is a skill our students use and will enjoy the rest of their lives.

Our ensembles have performed for the state, district, and national conventions and clinics. The Marching Band has performed in London, England; San Francisco, California; and marched at Walt Disney World in Florida. The Blue Note Jazz Band has traveled to Indianapolis, Atlanta, Orlando, Chicago, Los Angeles, Kansas City, and New York City.

Students at Lincoln East are very fortunate to have a wide variety of quality music ensemble opportunities. These ensembles can be subdivided into two major groups: Co-Curricular and Extra-Curricular.

Co-Curricular ensembles meet during the school day and students are enrolled through Lincoln East to participate. Students receive a grade in these ensembles and therefore must adhere to the grading requirements set forth by each class. Classes offered are listed in the Ensembles.

Extra-Curricular ensembles are not actual classes and typically meet outside of the school day, both before and after school, and in no way are required to be in band at East. They are meant to be extra opportunities that are open to East Band students.
