About the BNI Music Program
The Bishop Noll band has been the crown jewel of Bishop Noll Institute since the early 1930s. It has won countless trophies and competitions during its storied history. The band program disappeared for a series of 8-9 years but was resurrected in 2010 by band director Rocco Carioto “Mr. C” and has carved out a new history for the program, winning national awards at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tennessee, for concert band, jazz band and marching band. The band has performed and won all types of major awards in the Chicago Thanksgiving Day parades, Chicago St. Patrick's Day parades, and Chicago Columbus Day parades just to name a few.
