McKendree University Preview of Champions
Lebanon, Illinois

September 28, 2013

The 2013 edition of the Preview of Champions will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2013. The Preview of Champions is an independently run contest by McKendree University and will feature top notch adjudicators and clinicians! The competition schedule will be based on the number of entries with an early evening awards ceremony. Bands who attend another competition elsewhere are extremely welcomed to attend, just let us know of your schedule.

McKendree University is 25 Minutes from downtown St. Louis, located conveniently between interstates 55/70 and 64. Bands will compete on a lighted, Game Day turf field, in classes based on number of instrumentalists. Awards are given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each class and a Grand Champion Award. Caption awards for Outstanding Percussion, Color Guard, Music, and Visual are also given in each class. After each bands performance there will be a video review and clinician comments. An indoor director and staff hospitality room overlooking the field will also be available.
