Hosted by the Papillion-La Vista South High School Titan Marching Band, this invitational is sanctioned by the Nebraska State Bandmasters Association and follows a prelim/finals format. The Titan Marching Invitational allows bands the opportunity to perform for and receive feedback from a nationally-acclaimed judging panel who have a background in adjudicating and working with DCI, BOA, and WGI groups. Attending this invite will include some of the most outstanding high school marching bands throughout the midwest.

All bands will advance to the Finals Competition. There will be a critique session with the judges for the participating directors and staff in between Prelims and Finals Competition. During finals, there will be caption awards for best music, visual, effect, guard, and percussion along with trophies for the top three scoring bands.

Omaha Street Percussion will perform before the Prelims Awards Presentation and the University of Nebraska at Omaha Marching Mavericks will perform before the Finals Awards Presentation.

TMI provides lounges for Band Directors and Staff and Bus Drivers where food and beverages will be provided.

Bands who wish to perform as an exhibition or prelims only are encouraged to register. Bands of all classes and sizes are encouraged to attend as well.
