Friday, October 6.  We welcome back all of the SVB Alumni!  Let's make this year a record year!  How many alumni can get here!!!


We are incredibly pleased to announce that SVB was selected and School Board Approved to represent Sylvania & Southview High School in the 2019 Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade! We have made a weekend out of the parade! We're going to attend a music/auxiliary clinic at Northwestern University, march in the parade, dine in some of Chicago's best restaurants, see a show, and visit the must see sights of the city! Please open the handbook/information packet regarding the trip.

NOTE: There will be an informational meeting scheduled regarding this trip. Date is pending building availability.


What?  A special evening that showcases area marching bands and concludes with all of the bands performing on the field at the same time.

When? Saturday, September 15, 2018.  Students report to SVHS at 3:30pm.  Parents and Family are encouraged to come!  The show will get started at 7:30.  Trust us, it's worth the drive!

Where?  Defiance High School.  1755 Palmer Drive, Defiance, OH.

Is this required?  This is a performance for the marching band, it is required and falls under the Performance Attendance portion of the quarter grade.  Besides, we are only as good as our "weakest link" so we need everybody there!

Anything else?  We need chaperones for this event.  Please register on SignUp Genius.


Dinner will be provided to band members and the chaperones who travel with the band.


SV Band Handbook

There is a LOT of new stuff in the handbook!  Including a new grading outline and varsity credit requirements.  Make sure you've read the handbook cover to cover!


We will be checking these items with each individual student.  Failure to have class supplies will result in the loss of points in the Attendance & participation category of the quarter grade.

  • ALL Band Members: printed coordinate sheets on the field everyday.
  • Wind Players: all music printed and in functional flip folder/lyre.
  • Drumline: you need to have a 3-ring binder for your music.
  • Snare Drums: purchase 2 pair of the Innovative Percussion Velocity Sticks (must be NEW sticks for the beginning of the season)
  • Tenor Drums: purchase 2 pair of the Innovative Percussion AT1 (must be NEW sticks for the beginning of the season)
  • Sousaphones: you just need a flip folder
  • Printed Music size: Marching band music is small so it can fit into the flip folders. If you're quick to memorize or would like larger print music for indoor rehearsal, just adjust your print size of each piece to make it larger. We suggest keeping these items in a 3-ring binder with sheet protectors.
