ABOUT THE EASTVIEW BAND PROGRAM

The Eastview High School Band program is recognized as one of the largest and most well-rounded band programs in the state of Minnesota. Over 400 students are actively involved in a wide variety of instrumental music activities. The program centers on daily instruction in five separate concert bands and private lesson instruction for all band students. Bands are organized through an audition process which allows students to progress through the program as their talent and interest allow. Our most advanced ensembles perform a challenging musical repertoire frequently heard at college and professional concerts.

We strive to provide high quality musical experiences for our students that will permanently enrich their lives. The Eastview High School Wind Ensemble has been selected for featured performance three times by the Minnesota Music Educators Association including an appearance at the Minneapolis Convention Center in February, 2014. Our marching band is an active, award winning ensemble in regional marching band competitions and has been a finalist at the St. Louis Bands of America Super Regional. Jazz Ensemble One has earned outstanding ensemble awards at jazz festivals in LaCrosse, Eau Claire, Rolling Meadows (IL) and Green Bay. Since the school opened in 1997 the Eastview Band program has had 173 members of Minnesota All-State instrumental groups which is more than any high school in Minnesota over the same time period.

Every three years the band members are offered an international tour. The Eastview band was the first band in the state to tour China in 2002 performing a concert in the famous Forbidden City of Beijing and on the Great Wall. The group has also performed concerts in Paris, London, Venice, Rome, Barcelona, Vienna and Budapest. In the spring break of 2017 Eastview traveled to Ireland and held concerts in Galway and Ennis performing with renown Irish traditional artist Eamonn Cotter. 

 

We are tremendously proud of our band students. They have built an Eastview band legacy filled with fantastic music, exciting experiences and wonderful people.
