The Mountain View High School Band Program was founded in the Fall of 2009 with the school's opening. Setting the standard of excellence, the band program has established itself as an entertaining and award winning group of young adults. It continues to grow and perform in the Gwinnett County community as well as throughout the state of Georgia, and has garnered several awards in all aspects of the program - the concert ensembles, jazz ensemble, percussion ensembles, winter guards, and the Black and Gold Brigade.
Since its first season, the marching band has continued to perform entertaining shows for members of the community and has participated in various events. The band has performed the National Anthem at the Gwinnett Braves CoolRay Field (2010, 2012, 2013 & 2014); the Dacula Memorial Day Parade (2012, 2013, 2014); the Mall of Georgia Christmas Parade (2010-present); the 38th Annual Fantasy of Lights Parade in Gatlinburg, TN (2013); and the annual Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade in 2014.
