"Enriching Lives Through Music!" That simple phrase sums up what the Kearney High School Band is all about. We strive, in everything that we do, to build a strong "family" atmosphere that emphasizes personal growth and achievement, group excellence, and service to our community.
The KHS Band performs more 50 times throughout the year ranging from marching band performances to chamber group performances in retirement homes. We are proud of our students and want the community to hear what they can do.
We offer 3 concert bands, 2 jazz bands, pep band, chamber groups, theory courses, music contests, and an award-winning marching band. There is a group for every level and interest.
The KHS Band has been invited twice to perform at the Nebraska State Bandmasters Convention and has earned numerous awards across our great state. We have also traveled extensively and have performed in Washington D.C., New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans, Walt Disney World, Branson, and recently was invited to perform in Germany and the Czech Republic!
We believe that music is a universal language and the opportunity to express it should be given to all. Learning a musical instrument has proven time and time again in studies to improve so many areas of a person's life and is something that can be pursued one's whole life. We encourage you to be a part of the music and join or support the KHS band today!
