West High Trojan Marching Band in Downtown Iowa City

Iowa City West High School Bands

  • West High School has a fine tradition of musicianship in Iowa City. Established in 1969, West High Bands have been producing student musicians who excel in performance and creativity. Directors Rob and Rich Medd diligently craft a learning atmosphere where students learn to come together as a cohesive band community. West High Bands are greatly promoted by an active WHS administration and involved parent support group.


  • School is canceled till April 13th, but you can still practice your instruments at home! Make some music at home to lift everyone's spirits!

    The following band related events have been canceled:

    * April 2 (CANCELED) -  WHS Band Chamber Ensemble Concert

    * April 7 (CANCELED) - Iowa Jazz Band Championships

    * April 18  (CANCELED) - IHSMA State Solo & Ensemble Festival 


    If your instrument is still at school:

    You will be able to pick your instrument up at the Auditorium Lobby, this Friday, March 27th, between 9am and 11am. You must email us as soon as possible, to let us know where your instrument is (which locker room, band room, etc.) and that someone will pick it up on Friday. When you come to school, you will not be allowed anywhere but the auditorium lobby, you should have only one person do the pick-up, and you should not congregate with others. This will be the only time to get your instrument until school resumes.
