Over 100 students are involved in the 5th through the 8th-grade band and accomplish their mission by God’s grace through high musical standards, breadth of performance opportunities, and a community-based approach to music-making. Ensembles regularly serve as a vehicle of God’s grace in the school community, in the local community, and on an annual out-of-town performance tour.
Highlights from the past several years include an annual overnight trip to either Orange City Tulip Festival, or the Celebrate CB Parade in Council Bluffs, or the Parade at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. The PCGS Band Program is committed to performing high-quality repertoire that gives students a breadth of aesthetic, historical, and stylistic performance opportunities. In addition to band music, percussionists perform various styles of percussion ensemble music.
