North Marion High School is proud to announce the 2017 Kingdom of the Sun Marching Band Festival that will take place on Saturday, November 11, 2017 here at NMHS. This is a Prelims/Finals event and is sanctioned by the Florida Marching Band Coalition (FMBC).
Our event will feature five different competitive classes. Performance order will be based on the postmark of your entry fee in each class. As our regional is scheduled one week prior to the 2017 FMBC State Championships it allows bands that participate to block and achieve superior level in their seeding for the FMBC State Championships with the appropriate score in their division.
There will be a Judges Critique Session between prelims and finals for directors/staff. Finals will include class winners and the next five highest scores totaling ten bands in Finals. Awards will be given for both Prelims and Finals. Prelims will be limited to the first 18-20 bands who submit an online application (follow the link below) and mail a $150 entrance fee.
Judges will use the FMBC guidelines and we will have a qualified panel of approved adjudicators.
Application along with $150 entry fee must be postmarked on or before Friday, October 20, 2017.
