Prospect Knight of Champions
Mount Prospect, Illinois

October 5, 2013

The Prospect High School Band Boosters will be sponsoring the Knight of Champions marching band competition on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Prospect High School, 801 W. Kensington, Mount Prospect, IL. Bands will compete in three classes: A (up to 64 members), AA (65 to 96 members), and AAA (97 or more members). Awards presented will include first, second, and third place in Class A, AA, and AAA. Additional awards for Outstanding Percussion, Outstanding Auxiliary, Outstanding Music, Outstanding Visual and outstanding General Effect will be given to each class. Participation awards will be presented to all bands that perform. There will be caption-specific commentary and scoring, and an overall Grand Champion Traveling trophy. We will be utilizing a scoring system similar to Bands of America. We hope to make our 17th contest a pleasant and memorable event for everyone. Hope to see you there!

Weather Note: We were affected by strong storms passing through the northern suburbs of Chicago just about the time the show was to start. We held the AA band performances as stand still indoors in the field house. The weather had cleared so we moved back outdoors for the AAA bands and they were able to all give full performances on the field. Because of the split in indoor and outdoor we did not award a Grand Champion this year. Nor did we award an outstanding visual caption for the AA bands.

*Parking will be limited due to the number of bands attending the festival; with much of the high school parking lot used for visiting schools' buses and equipment trucks. We recommend that you carpool if possible. As you pull into Prospect's lot, a parking lot attendant will give you a map of the neighborhood and streets available for parking if there is no parking available in the school lot.
