Evanston Township High School’s Wildkit Marching Band was named grand champion in a competitive festival held Oct. 10. ETHS students participated in the Marengo Settlers Days event, where the Wildkit performance of “2021: The Musical” took the top honors in the show.
ETHS also placed first in Class 3A Field (brass, woodwind, marching, and percussion) at the event. For more information, visit the Illinois Marching Online website.
More than 115 students are members of the Wildkit Marching Band. Known as the “Pride of ETHS,” the band represents the spirit and enthusiasm of the high school through music, marching and cheers. The ensemble plays at all home football games, the fall pep rally and at competitions and parades in Evanston and beyond.
