Advanced Bands

The Vivian Field Viking Band has three Advanced Bands: the Honors Band, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band. These bands are ability-based and each student will perform an audition to determine which ensemble fits their musical needs best. Where the focus of Beginner Band is on the individual musician, the focus of the Advanced Bands is on the group and learning how to play in an ensemble setting. Students in the Advanced Bands are expected to take their instrument home every day to practice and have all supplies and music in class every day.
