Welcome to the Walter R. Sundling JHS Band Website!

  • Welcome to the Walter R. Sundling Junior High School Band Website.  WRS is located in Palatine, Illinois, about thirty-five miles northwest of Chicago. 

    Band is one of the most exciting and rewarding educational opportunities offered by our school.  The goal of the WRS Band Program is to provide our students with the highest quality musical experience.  Recent statistics indicate that students who participate in music are among the academically strongest in their schools.  In addition to musical experience, band students also learn the importance of group cooperation, high self-esteem, teamwork, persistence, leadership and confidence.

    Currently, there are over 135 Seventh and Eighth Grade students enrolled in the WRS Band program.  Our Band program offers three performing ensembles: Symphonic Band, Concert Band and Jazz Band.
