Instrumental music at Lutheran West is multifaceted and welcomes participation by students of all proficiency levels. Instrumental music options include Concert Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Pit Band (for theatrical productions), Orchestra, and Chamber Music.
Students who opt to participate in Band will be members of the Marching Band in the fall and the Concert Band for the remainder of the year. The other instrumental music options are available for musicians who would like further playing opportunities.
Students also play in the Chapel Band, which leads the musical component of our bi-weekly Chapel services.
