•Lincoln Band•

The Lincoln High School Band Program is one of the preeminent instrumental music programs in the Bay Area. Lincoln Bands are open to all students currently enrolled at Abraham Lincoln High School, an Academic, Visual, and Performing Arts School. Lincoln offers a place for every student to make music regardless of prior musical experience. From beginners through advanced musicians, we have an ensemble for everyone. We offer four (4) levels of Concert Band, two (2) levels of Jazz Band, and the Lion Pride Pep Band. Students also have the opportunity to perform in the pit orchestra for the two musicals that Lincoln's theater department produces each year.

  • Our bands have recorded at the studio in Skywalker Ranch; we’ve traveled to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Colorado, and Washington, D.C.
  • Our Lion Pride Band performs at all home football games; and every Thanksgiving Day we put on an annual stand-shaking, audience-pumping performance at the Big Bone Game, the longest running high school football rivalry this side of the Mississippi!
  • The Jazz Band is the top ensemble in our Band Program. Requested at many venues throughout California, the Jazz Band can be found performing at The Tech Museum of San Jose, Pier 39 in San Francisco, Disneyland, the State of the Valley Conference hosted by Joint Venture, and our own Black Box Theater at events such as our annual Jazz in the Box.
  • Our various ensembles consistently receive high ratings at festivals and competitions, with our Jazz Band recently earning a “Command Performance” designation at the Santa Cruz Jazz Festival.

The Lincoln High School Band Program prides itself on being an inclusive, passionate, exciting, and artistic place for students to make music. Students develop a lifelong love and appreciation for music, and perform together at a high level of excellence.
