Welcome to the ASCS Band website!  On this site you will be able to find upcoming performance dates and information, the lesson schedule, the Band Handbook, and weekly updates on what we are doing in band.

The mission of the All Saints Catholic School Band is to provide a well-rounded musical education for every child. This education focuses on building a solid foundation of musical knowledge upon which artistic performances are built. In addition to providing a quality music education, the band program also recognizes the need to educate the whole child. Here at All Saints, we seek to develop the character and citizenship of each member of our band, assisting each child to attain his/her own personal best.

On Saturday, Dec. 9, a few students and teachers from All Saints participated in Quad Cities Tuba Christmas. There were over 150 tuba and euphonium players from across the area performing Christmas carols at Southpark Mall. 6th grade students A.J. Barry and Drew Parchert were among some of the youngest in attendance. Also pictured are Mrs. Hawkins (ASCS band director), Mr. Hawkins, Mr. Barry (ASCS music teacher), Mike Rockstroh (ASCS alumni and current music education major), Erin Mahr (Assumption band director), and Terry Solomonson (Western IL University tuba professor).
