  4. Effingham Band Program

    The Effingham High School Marching Band will go to a new format this coming season with a volunteer, extra-curricular group. The name of the marching band will be "Effingham Red Regiment". In addition, the concert band is going to be split into two curricular/auditioned groups that will begin rehearsing within the school day when school begins in August. We are very excited about these major changes!
