Drums at Appletime
Murphysboro, Illinois

September 14, 2013


The Murphysboro Drums at Appletime competition is a premier competition hosting bands from Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, and Iowa, and consistently draws 3,000 - 4,000 spectators. In an effort to be responsive to the needs of bands early in the season, Drums at Appletime features a review session with a field show clinician for band directors and band members immediately following their performances. Field judge's performance comments will also be made available to band directors during the week following the competition. A Grand Champion will be crowned by combining parade and field show scores and an Overall Drums at Appletime Champion will be crowned based on field show performance points regardless of class.
