2024 marks the 46th Anniversary of the Blue Springs Golden Regiment Invitational Marching Festival!
Join us for:
The GRI will feature two performance competitions, the purple and gold shows. The performance at both shows is optional giving schools the flexibility to manage their competition based on the needs of their schedule. Some schools may choose the morning/afternoon show to allow a shorter day competition. Other schools may choose to utilize the morning for their own technical rehearsals before taking the field in the evening competition. And many schools will choose both shows as an opportunity to perform twice in one day while receiving two performance scores at a discounted price.
This competition format gives bands the opportunity to receive a guarantee of two show adjudications and critiques from top level judges from around the country. All bands are given two chances to receive class awards with this two-show format. This format has been popular for bands that are looking for "early in the season" judging and feedback as they work to develop their show throughout the rest of their competition season.
The gold (evening) show will feature bands split into classifications based on the school's size. However, the performance order will be based on a random draw and adjudicators will not be given any indication about what class size division each band is placed in. The top three returning bands (based on scoring) from the 2023 Golden Regiment Invitational marching festival will automatically be granted the final three evening performance time slots. The random draw will be recorded and published through the Golden Regiment Invitational YouTube channel in the weeks prior to the competition. Awards will be provided for the top four bands in each classification with a maximum of four bands in each group. Additionally, trophies for outstanding soloist(s), visual performance, musical performance, and general effect (regardless of groupings) will be presented. And to round out the cross-classification competition, Grand Prize awards will be presented for the top three placements overall.
Pricing and Registration:
