Prelims/Finals Format: There will be 23 bands that will be compete – each band will receive a total score for comparison among all bands for prelims. There will be 5A 1st,2nd, 3rd place awards and 6A 1st,2nd, 3rd place awards. The Top 10 scoring bands will advance to finals. The performance order will be a split – random Bottom 5 and then random top 5.
Finals participants will receive a finalist plaque and the finals champion will receive a trophy, caption trophies will be awarded to the highest in each caption for prelims and finals: Best Music, Best Visual, Best Effect, Best Guard and Best Percussion.
Congratulations to the Creekview Band. This weekend they competed in the USBANDS Marching Band contest. The band competed in Class III and received a score of 80.15 Winning ALL CAPTIONS: Overall effect, Best Music, Best Visual, Best Colorguard, and Best Percussion. Among 17 bands that competed our placement was in 6th place with two band ahead of you ONLY by tenths of points. The highest score was an 83 by our friends at Coppell. What a great start to the Contest season!
This will be a really exciting week as we have a Stadium rehearsal, Homecoming Parade, Pep Rally, Homecoming Game (PREGAME PERFORMANCE 6:30pm) and the HEB Marching Contest! The HEB contest site is where our UIL Marching contest will be held – this contest will be one of two tough contests we’ll attend – being that this is a 6A state year, we will see many larger schools compete, but we’re used to competing with big bands ;) Make plans to join us throughout the week! And wear your best CHS RED to the games and contest! - don’t be shy.. cheer for your mustangs every time you see something you like!
