Welcome to the Idalou High School Wildcat Band!

The Mission Statement of the IHS Band is:

The Idalou High School Band is filled with pride of a rich history of hard-working, diverse people who come together as a family to continue the legacy set before us. Through dedicated practice toward furthering our musicianship and inspirational performances we aspire to become leaders in our school and community while continuing our tradition of excellence.


The Wildcat Band is enjoying a period of success highlighted by seven consecutive UIL Sweepstakes awards, ten Sweepstakes in twelve years, nine 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.
