The St. John XXIII band is unique in that we are one of only two high schools in the Archdiocese to have a marching band program. The marching band program began in 2011 with 10 members and now is 38 members strong. The band supports St. John athletics by performing at all football games as well as serving as a Pep Band for various sports throughout the school year. Membership in marching band in the fall counts as 1/2 PE credit. Athletic forms for participation in band can be found in the Document Links on the Student Life page.
St. John XXIII’s band give two concerts each year with the orchestra and choir at Christmas and in the spring. The band also performs annually at the Texas Renaissance Festival in November, dressing in period costumes and taking part in the Early Music Festival. During the spring semester, the band competes as both an ensemble and as smaller ensembles or soloists at several TAPPS events at both the regional and state levels.
The band is under the direction of Mrs. Wendy Elko.
