South Carleton's bands are on hiatus this year. Keep playing your instrument, and keep the joy that music brings alive in your heart.


South Carleton has two Concert Bands, a Jazz Band, and a Guitar Ensemble. We are community oriented, performing in local parades and at community events. The bands are made up of a variety of keen and talented musicians, representing every family of musical instruments. Band practices are held in the Music Room.
