$250 - Early Registration through 5/31/2023

Invitational Format:

The invitational is a prelims/finals format which will have 3 divisions based on band size (Blue, White & Gold). Your registration date is a primary consideration in your prelim performance time, so register early to perform later in the day. Bands from all divisions will perform throughout the day. 

ADDED THIS YEAR!: We will be offering clinics for each band following prelims.

Ten bands will perform in Finals competition. Finals will be made up of the 3 class winners and the 7 highest scoring bands regardless of class. Drawing numbers will set Finals competition performance order. The top 5 prelims scores will draw for the last 5 performance times and the lower 5 prelims scores will draw for the first 5 Finals performance times.
