About the Band

The Mogadore Band Program, affectionately referred to as the “Pride of Mogadore” has started a developing presence within the Mogadore Village Community. From their performances at the annual Mogadore Festival, Mogadore Wildcat Band Show, football games, and various other community performances, the band program is reaching to new levels!

Within the past six years, the Mogadore Band Program has had a record number of students participate in various concerts, festivals, and competitions. More than half the high school band and junior high represented Mogadore in the Ohio Music Education Association’s Solo and Ensemble contest earning "Superior" and "Excellent" ratings. The program has also seen a record number of students represent Mogadore in the Ohio State Middle School Honor Band, The University of Akron Honor Band, and the prestigious, Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony. In addition, the program has consistently received "Superior" and "Excellent" Ratings at the district and state level for the Ohio Music Education Association’s Large Group Adjudicated Event.
