Classifications will be according to the number of all playing members (winds and percussion) in each band. Classes will be determined 2 weeks prior to the Festival date. All bands will perform in the class assigned according to the deadline (2 weeks prior to Festival) even if the band has fewer playing members the day of the Festival. If on the festival day your playing members exceed the class in which you are entered, your band will automatically be moved to the next class.
Bands will be divided into four equal categories.
A = fewest number of playing members;
B = bands larger than A
C = bands larger than B
D = remaining bands larger than C

A $275 application fee is required (all entry fees are nonrefundable)
