ABOUT THE PVMS BAND PROGRAM
The Park View Middle School Band Program is comprised of 7th grade band, 8th grade band, extracurricular Jazz Band, brass choir, and clarinet choir. Students that took band in elementary school continue with 7th and 8th grade band Park View Middle School. Beginning band is also being offered in the 2018-2019 school year to encourage students to join the MASD band program if they missed the opportunity in elementary school. Due to overwhelming interest, the extracurricular jazz band has become an auditioned ensemble for the top musicians at Park View.
Park View Band students participate in the WSMA Solo/Ensemble Festival every year, and the 8th grade band attends the Music Showcase Festival in the WI Dells. The 8th grade band earned a Superior Rating in its inaugural trip to the Music Showcase Festival in 2017 as well as recognition for Outstanding Trumpet Section and Outstanding Percussion Section. Each November, select students have been nominated and accepted to represent Park View at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Middle School Band Festival. A number of middle school band students participate in the Mukwonago High School Marching Band as well as Blue2 indoor percussion. Finally, Park View was proud to be represented at the WSMA Middle Level Honors Band in 2018.
