New Students & Parents
Please stop by our Students and Parents page to find helpful information about the instrumental music at West Linn High school.
Welcome to the web site for the West Linn High School instrumental music program. West Linn High School is part of the West Linn Wilsonville school district in suburban Portland, Oregon.
The West Linn Band and Orchestra program is one of the finest in the State of Oregon. The tradition and reputation of excellence is well known throughout the Northwest, and it is one of West Linn High School's most celebrated points of pride. The program is busy with many performances each year, offering a wide range of experiences from classical to jazz to solo/ensemble, in venues like our brand new 600 seat auditorium and also festivals throughout the region. Each year the Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra and soloists participate in league, district and state festivals, always receiving superior ratings, consistently placing first in the league and in the top 10 at state. The WLHS instrumental music program has a place for all students, whether serious musicians or students who just love to play their instrument in a more casual way. Between the Symphonic Band, Concert Band I and II, Jazz Band, String Orchestra, Pep band and 2-3 after school jazz combos, there is a place for everyone. It is a strong and well supported community in the school that supports each member and builds lasting friendships.
The West Linn High School instrumental music department is directed by Kevin Egan.
