UHS Band performs at Disney

The Urbana High School Bands include two concert bands, a marching band and color guard, a big-band style jazz ensemble, a jazz combo, a brass choir, a woodwind choir, and a percussion ensemble. The UHS Bands are known for their high-quality performances.

The Urbana Bands are more than just musical ensembles. We are a family of students, parents, teachers, and patrons. Most of all, we are Urbana High School Tigers!

The band is supported by the school district, and some additional fees (as is typical for sports) are charged. See the Boosters page for the band wish list.  If you would like to support the band with a donation, checks payable to Urbana Bands can be sent to the attention of Mr. Hicks at Urbana High School, 1002 S Race, Urbana, IL 61801.
