Proviso West High School will be the scene for great music, marching bands, and student entertainment when Proviso East High School hosts its 12th annual Battle of the Bands from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 17.

Moved to Proviso West due to construction at the nearby Proviso East Fieldhouse, the Proviso East Battle of the Bands will bring together more than seven marching bands and drum lines from around the Chicago area and beyond. Among the competing schools will be defending champion Trotwood (Ohio) High School, Oak Park (Michigan) High School, Dunbar High School, Rich East High School, and Rich Central High School as well as the hosts, Proviso West High School.

“The bands themselves are the attraction,” said Mr. Reginald Wright, director of the Proviso East bands. “They can show off what they’ve done throughout the year.”

The competition will feature college-level judging by the directors of the Central State University (Ohio) bands. In addition, the Proviso East alumni band also will be helping out with the organization of the competition. VFP
