The Falcon Force Band Program is a comprehensive instrumental music program working with students in grades 9-12 as well as 7th and 8th graders from local Catholic elementary schools in marching band and auxiliary groups. The program includes students of all levels, from beginners to those with many years of experience planning to student music at the university level. Students with all levels of experience can participate in the program playing string, wind, keyboard and percussion instruments.
