Things to Know

  • Wear red to show our “sea of red” supporting our performers.

  • This event is ideal for band families, grandparents, extended family and close friends.

  • If you have one, bring a stadium chair or blanket for extra comfort on the bleacher seats. 

  • Feel free to take photos of the band at the event, but please do not share videos online or on social media. We want to keep some secrets from the general public. 

  • Be prepared to hear very loud ticking sounds. It’s from a metronome, which the band uses early in the season as a practice tool to produce a steady pulse (or beat) to help musicians play rhythms accurately. The pulses are measured in beats per minute (BPM). Don’t worry, it’s no longer used when competitions start.
