ENGLEWOOD, CO – The first Friendship Cup Scholastic Marching Band Competition for the fall 2016 season kicks off at Englewood High School on Saturday, September 17, 2016.

In addition to the marching band contest, there will be a band clinic for all participating bands in the morning and afternoon before the show (8:00am-4:30am). Each band will get a 45-minute consultation on marching and playing by a judge followed by a 45 minute practice time on a nearby athletic field.

After the band clinic, there will be a Blue Knights Leadership Xperience (BKLX) hosted by Alex Factor and CJ Garcia during the dinner break (4:30pm-5:30pm) for drum majors and student leaders of all the participating bands. Participants should plan to bring their own dinner meal with them to the BKLX session. Alex and CJ are recent age-outs of the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps and have been instrumental in assisting Ascend Performing Arts with educational opportunities during the past two years, having also hosted a student leadership clinic for participants during the recent BKXperience-Perform! clinic held on the day of Drums Along the Rockies.
