Marian Catholic Marching Band captures state class 3A title for 42nd time

Marian Catholic High School’s Marching Band in late October captured first place in its class at the Illinois State Marching Bands Championship competition held at Illinois State University in Normal.

The band received the highest scores in Class 3A for music performance, visual performance and effect, and remains undefeated in its class since 1980. Winning first in Class 3A earned the band an automatic berth in the final competition, where they placed fifth out of 15 bands across all classes in the finals.
