On Saturday, Sept. 22, marching bands from across the Western Slope will take part in a clinic at Delta High School. The event is intended to help the bands iron out the kinks in their field shows prior to the competitions which will qualify them for the state finals.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., clinicians will evaluate each band's performance and provide helpful critiques.
Beginning at 3:30 p.m., the bands will perform their shows. The public is invited to watch at no charge. The schedule is as follows: Central, 3:30; Delta, 3:45; Palisade, 4; Durango, 4:15; Cedaredge, 4:45; Montrose, 5; Fruita, 5:15; and Grand Junction, 5:45.
The clinic is sponsored by the Colorado Bandmasters Association. The CBA also sponsors the Colorado West Marching Festival in Grand Junction on Saturday, Oct. 6, and the state qualifying regional, also in Grand Junction, on Thursday, Oct. 18. State competition for 1A-3A is Monday, Oct. 29, at Colorado State University's Pueblo campus.blog comments powered by Disqus
