Boys State Band

The Illinois Boys State Band has rehearsals daily under the direction of a professional music educator from EIU. The Band will showcase their talents throughout each and every day at Flag raisings, Flag retreats, and nightly Band Concerts.

Citizens are encouraged to bring their instrument and participate in the band (Illinois Boys State will provide marching and concert percussion instruments). All instruments are welcome, including brass, woodwind, percussion, and string instruments.  Band members are able to participate in many other programs and activities during the week.
