CMR Symphonic Band


Charles M. Russell High School opened in 1965 and primarily serves the people on the west side of Great Falls, Montana (pop. 56,690). The band program features four concert bands, a jazz ensemble and a percussion class. Our Mission here at CMR is to provide a musical education which will allow our students to continue their musical growth and appreciation beyond high school.
