Unit #40 Fine Arts Programs

 Effingham High School has had a long-standing history of excellence in the Fine Arts during its school history. From the earliest year books, the pages are stamped with memories of those who participated in a variety of arts offered at EHS. Those arts include the music programs with band and choir, the theatre program, and the visual arts curriculums with art and multi-media, the newest and cutting-edge course offered for young people.

Band has grown over the years to become a powerhouse of activity offering young people the opportunity to participate in marching band, concert band, jazz band, and a variety of contests. Recognition for excellence is commonplace and the young people who work to hone their skills in music have continually been rewarded for their excellence by being named to the All-State Bands. These students are chosen from among all student musicians from across the state of Illinois.
