Tradition, Pride, Unity, Excellence, Commitment

“Our ambition knows no bounds. Our strength is limitless. PRIDE is the epitome of who we are. We are Winds. We are Guard. We are Pit. We are Battery. We are…the PARK VISTA HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMERS!”

Since its inception in 2004, The Park Vista Band program has gained quite a reputation for being one of the most elite band and colorguard programs in our country.  Sustained by supportive parents and a talented staff, the PV Performers has been able to accomplish many great things in a short amount of time.  The band has earned consistent Superior ratings in all facets of the program.  They have represented the State of Florida in many bowl games and parades throughout the country.  In 2012, they were the featured band for the Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl game where they earned $10,000 as the sweepstakes award recipient.  Along with traveling abroad, the Park Vista band has also won many local and state competitions.  They are a Bands of America Regional Finalist and are the 2014 State Champions in the 5A division.  Creating and maintaining culture of excellence is certainly the yearly goal of the Park Vista Band program.  Its commitment to Achievement and Pride has made it an undeniable force of positivity within Park Vista High School and the community abroad.

The Park Vista Wind Ensemble attended the State Concert Music Performance Assessment on April 21, 2016 and received straight superior ratings. Additionally, they made history by receiving the Otto J. Kraushaar Award, which is the highest award that any band can receive in the state of Florida. No other band in Palm Beach County has received this award. We are extremely proud of our hardworking band students for their efforts and accomplishments at States!
