Band 3rd

Carbondale Terrier Music recently earned 3rd Place among all IHSA Class A Schools. IHSA's Class A includes all Illinois public and private schools from 630-1361 students, and is the one in which the largest number of schools typically participate.

 This level of success is far from new to the group, as they have placed in the top 3 across the state for a school record of 8 consecutive years. This ranking is earned through performances during the Spring Semester which include the State Solo and Ensemble Competition (The Band program finished 4th Overall, with Strings 5th and Choir 6th), as well as performances at the IHSA Organization Festival.

The music program has earned the coveted championship only 4 times in the history of the school. These were in 1954, twice in a row in 1981 and 1982, and most recently in 2014.
