"The Joliet Township High School Band was organized in 1912. Equipment included twelve second-hand instruments and nail kegs for chairs. The first home the band knew was a manual training room at the school. From this humble beginning, the band gradually rose to international prominence"
alumni centennial celebration of the JTHS bands was a rousing success!
As our band program embarks upon its second century we remain mindful of its fascinating history.
A history and tradition of music excellence that is rare and accompanied by the ongoing sense of
pride that all JTHS band alumni share. A tradition that remains strong and ever-present today
as current JT Central and JT West band members add new chapters.
