Welcome to the Lisle District 202 Band Program and the Lisle Band Parents Organization! The LBPO is a parent organization made up of all parents of Lisle Band students, 5th through 12th grade. Yes, you are now a member!
The LBPO is organized as an Illinois Non-Profit corporation with the purpose of promoting quality instrumental music education. The organization provides financial and volunteer assistance to Grade 5 through 12 band students and Flag Corps students. Parents help with uniform fitting and distribution, equipment movement, general assistance to the directors, and fund raising for items not provided by the music program’s school budget. We have recently purchased many instruments, including tubas and stands for the Schiesher band. Our instrument purchases are generally to provide unique, specialty, or very expensive instruments so that all bands can have the instrumentation and equipment they need to produce top quality performances.
In addition, the LBPO funds outside clinicians, soloists and composers to add to the program. Master Classes are held both during and outside of class, giving the students an expanded view and a different perspective on a variety of musical topics.
We also award Private Lesson and Music Camp scholarships to 5-8 students. All that is required is an application to the Band Director, most years we can provide scholarships to all that apply.
In short, we do whatever is required to improve the Instrumental Music Program of Lisle District 202. Please feel welcome to attend any and all LBPO business meetings, to get involved, and to encourage your students to enjoy and learn their instruments and KEEP ON PLAYING!
