Biography/HistoryBy 1892 (one year after Concordia opened), the school had already formed a band. In 1899, Wilhelm Rognlie became the director of the Concordia Echo Band, which made its first formal appearance in February 1900. Directorship of the band changed frequently between the years of 1902 to 1927. In 1910, the band began regular tours and performances at local events.
