Posted on 11/09/2017
Student with MusiciansBishop Heelan’s Marching Band was awarded a "1" rating at Iowa High School State Marching Band Competition this month – the highest ranking that can be awarded to a band.

Under Band Director James Kunz, a 2007 grad, the band has added flags and new instruments and new show choreography. Musicians wore all new uniforms this fall, thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Gilchrist Foundation and other donations. The 60-member band drew rave reviews with its Heelan football half-time performances this fall.
