Proviso West and Proviso East marching band students are proud of the annual tradition and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to showcase their talents.
"The Battle of the Bands is a great way to show everyone how much we have grown since the last battle and how far we have advanced in our instrumentation and musicality," Alex Givens, Proviso East sophomore and marching band member, said.
The Battle of the Bands is an event that is well attended by proud PTHS D209 alumni who year after year continue to show their support to students.
"This event is a great way to support the performing arts programs at our schools which gives kids an opportunity to get off the streets and do something that they are good at," said Jeremy Horn, Proviso East graduate. "As an alumnus, I am very humbled that this event has really grown and I am glad to see that people come out and support these students who practice hard to perfect their craft."
PTHS D209 commends Mr. Samuel Atcher, band director at Proviso West and Mr. Cletis Seals, band director at Proviso East for a wonderful showcase of music and Proviso talent.
