Why It Matters

The success of the Champaign Central High School music programs is a result of the dedication and hard work of the students, directors, school and district administrators, parents, teachers, boosters, and community members. Everyone involved realizes the importance of music and music education in the development of young people.

 

The music programs at Champaign Central High School -- band, marching band, jazz band, choir, and orchestra -- strive for the highest level of musical achievement through the dedication and strong work ethic of our students. Music programs offer priceless lessons in self-discipline, determination, leadership, and collaborative work toward shared goals. These traits and work habits carry over in our students long after they leave the concert hall and practice field. Thank you for your support of the music programs at Central!
