The Sedalia 200 School District and Smith-Cotton Tiger Pride Marching Band would like to invite you to the 6th annual Smith-Cotton Invitational marching band festival. The 6th Annual Smith-Cotton Invitational Marching Band Festival will be held on Saturday, October 9th at Jenny Jaynes Stadium in Sedalia, MO. This festival will be divided into even classes by DESE reported school size (THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS), but judges will not know which bands are in which class. It will be a single performance festival, beginning in the morning. Bands will have the opportunity to have a clinician work with either their entire band or their staff in the gymnasium following the performance. The stadium features a turf surface, a 4000 seat stadium, and a video board. Spectator admission for this festival is $5.
Bands will perform out of class and judges will not know the class of the band. Performance time will be set in reverse order of postmarks (first email/text/call will perform last). Bands will have the opportunity to have a clinician work with either their entire band or their staff in the gymnasium following the performance. Bands are welcome to perform for comments only as well. Thanks!
