Welcome to the Idalou High School Wildcat Band!


The Wildcat Band is enjoying a period of success highlighted by five consecutive UIL Sweepstakes awards, eight Sweepstakes in ten years, seven consecutive First Division ratings at UIL Marching Contest, an appearance in the Finals at UIL Area Marching Contest in 2011, ATSSB Outstanding Performance Series State Qualification, numerous All-Region Band members, and numerous UIL State Solo/Ensemble medalists and qualifiers.

The Wildcat Band prides itself on high expectations, high energy, and high spirit. The Band is built on four pillars it uses to measure individual and group success: Teamwork, Excellence, Accountability, and Musicianship. We are proud to represent the Idalou Community and proud to be a part of the Idalou High School tradition of excellence.

We hope that this site will become your hub for information regarding the Wildcat Band. Please continue to visit and explore as the site evolves along with the IHS Band program.
