DunkinBand.jpg

The Glenbard West Hilltopper Marching Band has a long tradition of excellence.  The Band has marched in competition throughout the Mid-West as well as performed in England on a number of occasions.  It is not the largest organization at Glenbard West, but also gets more public exposure than any other group in the school. The Glenbard West Hilltopper Marching Band is composed of students in IBand, Concert Band, and Symphonic Band who elect to march during the first semester.  The band performs at home football and various community functions throughout the year.
