Marching Bands

For information on how to register for a marching band event, please see the menu for “Resources” then “Fall Info”.

The short story on classifications

There are four performance classifications:  A, AA, Open, and Exhibition.

Any band can register as Open or Exhibition Class.

All other bands select “Band A or AA” when they register. The A and AA classes are determined based on the number of performers.

The size threshold between A and AA is determined (updated 9/10/2017) not later than two weeks prior to the first event of the Fall season, based on equalizing the number of Member bands in the A and AA classifications.

For Fall 2017, the A/AA size split is: 70/71.

An “A” band by size can elect to compete up in the “AA” class.

Exhibition bands receive full adjudication (if they pay the entry fee, or are the show host), but receive no score and are not eligible for awards.

Classification assignments are fixed throughout the entire season.
