We have exciting news to share today with all of our alumni… a summer 2017 alumni band concert event!  Our JTHS Alumni Band “Concert in the Park” event will take place on the evening of July 13, 2017 at Joliet’s Bicentennial Park. Conductors will be: 1) Ron Polancich, Joliet West Class of 1971, retired Director of Bands from York High School in Elmhurst, and; 2) Mike Fiske, Joliet East Class of 1972, retired Director of Bands from Joliet Central High School.  This has been conceived as a “local” event, and we certainly welcome Alumni from near and far who would like to participate.

The program will be lighter than past Alumni Band Concerts.  Ron and Mike are selecting music fitting a good old fashioned “Concert in the Park” to include marches, show tunes and light concert fare. Registration is now open to both performers and also those who simply wish to attend and enjoy the festivities.

Scholarship Awards

Another year and another round of scholarship applications, auditions, and interviews is in the books. Many thanks to all of our student applicants, as well as donors and directors for supporting these fine young men and women. 

As many of you know, participation in the JTHS band program is a rewarding, fulfilling, and life-changing experience. The students feel the presence of those who have come before them, and are touched by all of your commitment and support.

Thank you, and we hope you will join us in continuing this honor in the coming years.
