2017 Friendship Cup – Englewood Information
ENGLEWOOD, CO – The first Friendship Cup Scholastic Marching Band Competition for the fall 2017 season kicks off at Englewood High School on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Schedule and details are listed below for those units participating for this marching band contest. The Englewood show is sponsored by Ascend Performing Arts and the Englewood High School Band Boosters. Bands are classified by band size and will compete against bands their own size.

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-3:30pm). Each clinic will have five clinicians and will be 45 minutes long under the supervision of Chief Judge, Dr. Ed Cannava. Bands are encouraged to arrive 30-45 minutes early for parking, check-in, and warm-up. Please be at the gate and ready to go at least 5 minutes before your start time. Bands will be encouraged to perform their entire show at the beginning of the clinic, and then the clinicians will work with the band in sections and as a whole.
Blue Knights Leadership Xperience
During the day, there will be a Blue Knights Leadership Xperience (BKLX) hosted by Alex Factor and CJ Garcia, Blue Knights Alumni, during the lunch break (12:00pm-1:15pm) 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 three years, having also hosted a student leadership clinic for participants during the recent BKXperience-Perform! Clinic held at Drums Along the Rockies.
