Illiana Christian High School has many opportunities for students to get involved in musical arts. One place students can grow their passions is through our multiple orchestral style bands. Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and Orchestra offer students a high-quality music education while encouraging them to glorify God with their gifts. We take immense pride in our music program and hope you find a place to join us!
Glorifying God through music is important for every student at ICHS. In Genesis 1:28 we are commanded to subdue the Earth. This implies that all areas of human endeavor should come under Christ’s domination. Students who attend Illiana Christian should see the glory of God in the Arts as well as all other areas of the curriculum. Students should see their talents as gifts of God, to be used for his glory, not just for entertainment, self-gratification, or any other reason.
The curriculum in the Music Department is designed to help the students become the musicians God intends them to be. Students will be given skills of musicianship, vocal and instrumental technique, and interpretation to glorify God throughout their adult life, thus enriching the Christian community. In the Music Department, individual skills are augmented with group dynamics.
The bands and choirs are specialized communities within the Christian academic community. Students will be taught to have a responsible attitude toward other musicians, contributing their own talents to the good of the group. This includes musicianship, behavior towards others, a sense of responsibility toward the group and its objectives, and faithful attendance at all concerts.
