Building a tradition of excellence through pride and perseverence


Members of the Rummel Chapelle Band participate in ensembles including marching band, jazz band, symphonic band and percussion ensemble. Keeping an intense focus on musicianship, the band strives to dynamically blend traditional band literature with the popular works.


The Archbishop Rummel band program is a co-educational program in conjunction with Archbishop Chapelle High School. Unlike any other Catholic high school bands in the New Orleans metro area, this setup fosters a uniquely inclusive experience for students and for the community.

Storied & Historical

The Rummel Chapelle Band stands as one of the great musical traditions for Catholic school students in the region. The band performs around the state and indeed around the country carrying forward the work of decades of alumni.
