Contests, Competitions, and Festivals

The high school band participates in contests, competitions, and festivals throughout the school year. These venues provide students with opportunities to perform for a variety of audiences and competent judges, gather feedback and criticism, and listen to literature performed by their peers. Performing at these events also helps develop team unity within the band.

I believe that healthy competition promotes motivation within the band and reflects the nature of our society. I also believe that giving our absolute best effort, not necessarily winning, is our ultimate goal at these events.

The following are the contests, competitions, and festivals we are scheduled to perform in this year. Specific departure times and performance schedules will be announced closer to the scheduled dates. These performances are also indicated on the master Schedule of Events.
