Music has been prominent in the community since 1876 when the Sun Prairie Brass Band Association was first formed by Dr. Charles Crosse. The SPBBA supported the Sun Prairie Cornet Band which played at many community events and holiday functions throughout its’ existence. In 1907 music first became a part of the Sun Prairie public school curriculum and the first public school band was created in 1925. Today there are over 700 students enrolled in Sun Prairie public school bands.
