*Schedule for shows are posted on the Band app and are usually provided approximately one week prior to competition.
Please come out to support all of the hard work your kids and the staff have put in!
Call times are usually late morning to mid-afternoon depending on our scheduled performance time. Students will meet at the school and transportation to and from will be provided. General admission cost for family and friends usually runs approximately $10 per person; programs and concessions are usually available for purchase. Be sure to bring cash as some locations do not accept card. The Boosters will feed the students at least one full meal (and usually a light snack) for all out of town competitions. Students will be on their own (except for water) for all local shows. Please plan accordingly.
Field Show Scoring
Each field show (except Littlerock’s Preview Show) gets judged in the following categories: Visual Effect, Visual Performance, Percussion, Auxiliary (Guard), Music Effect, and Music Performance. These scores are used for placement within the So Cal School Band & Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) and will be posted on their website (www.scsboa.org).
