UCM Festival of Champions
Warrensburg, Missouri

October 20, 2012

The Festival of Champions is an end of the season, Regional High School Band Championship competition that is in its 12th season, continuing the 26 year tradition of excellence established by Music Bowl Missouri. The University of Central Missouri, Meyer Music and the Ararat Shrine Temple of Kansas City host the competition that includes 32 high school bands from across the Mid-West, with up to 7 additional high schools participating in just the Drumline/Auxiliary competitions. The average attendance has been 8,000 consisting of families of the participants, area band enthusiasts and much of the local community. The profits are used to offer scholarships to the University of Central Missouri music students, with a portion donated to the Ararat Shrine Temple Hospital Transportation Fund, which is used to fly severely burned children to their hospitals for treatment.
