Welcome to Mancelona Bands!

The Mancelona Band Program strives for musical excellence and a community experience amongst all of its students in grades 5 through 12. We work hard to learn and refine the fundamentals of music making and use those skills to create music that we can share with our hometown community.

Follow us on our Facebook page to stay updated on our latest accomplishments and experiences.

You can also check out what we have been up to through MHS's latest journalism & web design project, Mancelona Student Voice.
