Colorful Musical Scale

Lake Buena Vista Viper Vanguard


Welcome to Lake Buena Vista High School!  We are excited for the beginning our new band program here at Lake Buena Vista.  Below is some information regarding what will be offered in the program as well as tentative dates for when we will begin our journey together!

Curricular band offerings will include:

Wind Symphony

Symphonic Band

Beginning Band

Jazz Ensemble(s)


Color Guard

Viper Vanguard- The Viper Vanguard will be Lake Buena Vista High School’s most visible performance ensemble.  Students in the Vanguard will come from all facets of the program to combine for energetic marching performances for a variety of audiences.  The band will rehearse twice a week after school and play at Viper Football games, Marching MPA and an occasional Saturday Festival.  Marching Band lasts until the first week of November.

Rehearsals- Depending on facility availability we will have a few rehearsals/ice breakers in early June.  This will be an opportunity for us to get together and meet each other and begin to build our band together.  Band camp will be held at the determined time that OCPS provides, next school year that should be the week of July 19.  More details will be communicated once we know more about school opening and facilities, as well as district directives.

Students will be placed in concert ensembles based on a combination of director recommendations (from middle schools or high schools) and observation in early June rehearsals.  Students interested Jazz Ensembles should contact the band director to indicate their level of interest.  Depending on interest, we might look at auditioning for multiple groups if necessary. 

Check back for updates and communication  that will provide specific information about how we will begin our journey together.
