BOA on the Big Stage!

This weekend our marching band has the opportunity to perform in a national level contest, the Bands of America Indianapolis Super Regional at Lucas Oil Stadium! Remember (for those Contest 101 graduates) this is completely separate from our state ISSMA Contest (we will get back to that next weekend).

84 bands will come together from all over the midwest (and beyond) to perform on this grand stage!! 14 bands will be named super regional finalists! Finalist bands will not be announced until the awards ceremony at 3:45pm Saturday! Yes, this makes planning challenging. We are prepared for either scenario (performing in finals or watching finals). Parents, be flexible and ready to adjust your schedule... and BELIEVE! If you can dream it, you can do it. #Believe #AMillionDreams
