The Importance of the Shelby Band Program

Shelby City Schools are known for their strong and vibrant band program. The Whippet Bands and Choirs regularly qualify for the State Adjudicated Event, and the Whippet Theater program attracts large crowds each year. This continuous success underscores the program’s significance as a “vital part of our students’ comprehensive music education.”

The Symphonic Band’s achievement at the state contest demonstrates the high caliber of talent within the Shelby band program. The continued support from the community, educators, and parents plays a crucial role in the band’s success, allowing these young musicians to reach their full potential.

Congratulations to the Shelby Whippet Symphonic Band on this fantastic achievement! The community looks forward to witnessing more outstanding performances from these talented young musicians.
