STM Cougar Band
About the Band
The St. Thomas More Catholic High School Cougar Band is comprised of over 65 members ranging from woodwinds to brass and percussion to auxiliary. This group of artistically enriched young people have proven their worth as a worthy organization in today’s Music Education World.
Under the leadership of band director Mr. Mark Duhé, the STM Cougar Band began its preparation for the upcoming school year. The marching band has completed two and a half weeks of band camp and will be rehearsing on our band practice field every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-5 p.m. All are invited to show their support of the Cougar Band.
