Tri-State Small Band Marching Band Championship
The Tri-State (IL, MO, KY) Small Band Marching Band Championship is an independently run contest by McKendree University and will feature top notch adjudicators and clinicians! This competition is only for smaller bands with a maximum of 65 musicians total! We are currently determining if we will follow a semi-finals / finals format or just a one performance show. Band entries will be classified based upon the total number of musicians in the marching band (front ensemble, drumline, woodwinds and brass). We may additionally divide the classes by big school / small band and small school / small band for the contest to be fair for all participants. Since this is such a new format we will create a panel of interested participating directors so that YOU help us determine the best format for the show! Please contact David Boggs at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving on the panel.
McKendree University is 25 Minutes from downtown St. Louis, located conveniently between interstates 55/70 and 64.
