El Dorado High School Music Program

Surpassing Excellence and Conquering Limits

The mission of the El Dorado High School Music Program is to provide students with an enriching musical experience: to facilitate students in developing a level of musical growth that will enhance their quality of life and enable them to become lifelong advocates of music.

El Dorado High School offers instruction and performance opportunities for a broad range of abilities and interests of our student musicians. The three bands – Symphonic, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz – have earned multiple honors and awards over the years while providing valuable enrichment to each student’s educational experience. El Dorado High Bands also contribute to the engaging atmosphere of Placerville: from the annual parade performances at Homecoming and home Football games, our annual “A Taste of Main Street, the annual Christmas Parade, to our participation in various local choral and band music festivals.


El Dorado High School is rich in tradition and an example of a fine musical program. However, this could not have been accomplished without the help of dedicated parents, alumni and community businesses. The EDHS Cougar Band Aids Music Boosters invite you to join us in supporting this outstanding music program and musical tradition.
