About the Band and Woodland Hills High School Band Parent Organization

The Woodland Hills Marching Band and Images Ensemble has approximately 175 members in grades 8 through 12. The band members are from the 11 communities that comprise the Woodland Hills School District. These students perform in many community events, including football game half-time shows, parades, marching band festivals, and a major biennial band trip. Band students also tend to be leaders within the high school.

 The Band is supported by the Woodland Hills High School Band Parent Organization (WHHSBPO), one of whose purposes it is to raise the necessary funds to cover all Marching Band expenses. The Organization also provides chaperones for the various events and orchestrates the fundraisers that enable the Band members to raise the necessary funds to cover their trip expenses.

The major biennial trips are both a great honor and challenge for our students. Because of the quality of our past performances and the character of our students, Woodland Hills High School Marching Band and Images Ensemble has been invited to participate in many large venues throughout the United States. They include:
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (2018)
  • Gator Bowl, Jacksonville, FL (2015)
  • Fiesta Bowl, Phoenix, AZ (2013)
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (2011)
  • Fiesta Bowl, Phoenix, AZ (2005)
  • Hollywood Holiday Spectacular in Hollywood, CA (2003)
  • Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix, AZ (2001)
  • Outback Bowl, Tampa, FL (1999)
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (1997)
