Austin Lopez on Alto Saxophone, Will Thomas on Trombone, Justin Labilles on Percussion, Daniel Smith on Clarinet, Jonathan Franklin on French Horn, Nick Ireland on French Horn, and Andrew Monti on Trombone made the Red Band. Sam Magnin on Trumpet, Yitao Li on Flute, Seth Klumph on Flute, James McMillan on Clarinet, Andrew Scherson on Tenor Saxophone, Connor Singleton on Baritone Saxophone, Jonathan Forcherio on Trombone, and Austin Wright on Trombone all made Alternate Positions. Antonio Gonzalez placed in the All West Orchestra.

Andrew Devall, Noah Hubbard, and Kyle Rains will be moving on to All State in April.

Founded in 1872, the Christian Brothers Band is the oldest high school band in America. Patrick Bolton (CBHS '95) is Band Director.
