The Festival Band is a highly polished group of students made up from the members of the seventh and the eighth grade bands. The Festival Band is a traveling group. Every year this group represents Westview Middle School and Berkeley County School District at the South Carolina Band Directors Association, Concert Festival. This group may in the future have the opportunity to travel to festivals and conventions in other parts of the country. For these reasons, this group is auditioned. Audition requirements will be posted prior to the audition process, and the students that are able to execute those requirements at the highest levels of proficiency will be asked to join.
The uniforms for the festival band will be the band golf shirt, Black slacks or appropriate skirt, Black socks / hose and Black Shoes.
Students enrolled in band may have the opportunity to participate in a trip at some point in time. This may include, but is not limited to, missing portions or all of the school day. Students who are not meeting an acceptable level of academic progress may not be allowed to go on the trip. Each students situation will be reviewed before hand and parents will be notified with any concern. Students are reminded that when on a trip they represent the Westview Middle School Band, Westview Middle School, Berkeley County School District, themselves and their parents. Students with a history of misconduct in school may not be allowed to go on the trip. Each students situation will be reviewed before hand and parents will be notified with any concern.
