In the fall of 1997 Lakota East high school opened its door and had one 87 member class B concert band, a 96 member marching band and after school jazz band. The director of bands was Mr. William Thomas, the assistant director was Mr. Robert Tanis.

Today Lakota East (10th-12th grades) has three year-round concert bands (Symphonic Winds – Class AA, Symphonic Band – Class B, and Concert Band – Class C), two year-round jazz bands, and a 200+ member Marching Band. Concert and Jazz bands meet daily the entire school year.

At the high school level students audition and are placed into one of the three concert bands based on their ability and musical maturity. All high school bands have consistently received superior ratings at both OMEA District and State events. Marching Band is voluntary and meets after school in the fall. Lakota East band members audition to participate in the OMEA District 13 Honor Bands. We encourage and recommend each student experience the process of preparing and auditioning for the OMEA Honor Bands.

Our mission is for every student to enjoy, appreciate and perform music to the best of their abilities and to realize that playing a musical instrument can last a lifetime.
