Bands Across the Prairie
Cedar Rapids, Iowa

October 5, 2013

Offering the ultimate in innovation for marching band performance, education, and entertainment, the 13th annual “Bands Across the Prairie” Marching Invitational will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 10am-3pm, on the beautiful campus of Prairie High School, now with a “field turf” surface and renovated additional stadium seating!

We are proud to provide your band with many great opportunities: ample bus parking immediately next to the stadium, hard-surfaced flat area for loading/unloading pit equipment, indoor changing and restroom facilities, huge stadium seating, new “field-turf” stadium surface for perfect marching conditions, huge-screen video clinic in an air-conditioned auditorium immediately following your performance, ice-cold bottles of water for every performer, full-view and zoom-camera DVD’s of your performance, separate judges for both percussion and color guard in addition to the standard four judges, trophies for all places, Caption Awards in each class, and much more!

The scores provided by the Percussion and Color Guard adjudicators will be used to identify Caption Awards only, and will not be added to the other scores from the standard four judges when calculating the total score for each band’s performance. Thus, our scoring system will be on the standard IHSMA-format, with the addition of separate scores, judge’s tapes, and ballots for both your Percussion and Color Guard! You will also receive a free clinic from a well-respected educator immediately following your performance, with a video review of your performance during the clinic.
