Band Clinic

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.
