CHS band director Robert Wright shared some wonderful news! He received word on Friday, March 29 that the Collinsville High School Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at the University of Illinois Superstate concert band festival. An offer to participate in this festival is considered the highest honor an Illinois band can receive.
This marks the FIRST time in history that Collinsville has been accepted into this festival. This selection puts CHS in the TOP PERCENTILE of all Illinois Bands!
Congratulations to our CHS Wind Ensemble members as well as to Mr. Wright! Thanks, also, to DIS and CMS band directors Terry Van and Mike Alexander who most certainly had a hand in giving these students a great start and guidance along the way!
