This is a Prelims/Finals event and is sanctioned by the Florida Marching Band Coalition (FMBC). Our event will feature five different competitive classes according to total winds and percussion numbers (All percussion including front ensemble). Performance order will be based on the postmark of your entry fee in each class. 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 (http://www.nmhsmusic.com/kotsregistration.htm) and mail a $150 entrance fee.
