Band Invitational Set Oct. 8

On Oct. 8, 20 bands from Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming will be performing and competing in the 2016 Idaho State University Mountain West Marching Band Invitational.


Bands are placed in divisions based on the amount of students performing.  Each band is judged on the quality of their musical and visual performance, as well as their percussion and auxiliary (color guard) units. Each division will be awarded “Outstanding” Music, Visual, Percussion, and Auxiliary awards.  The overall highest score by an Idaho band will receive the Gem State Award.


The Idaho State University Marching Band will close the show at 3:30pm with their performance of music by pop superstar, Rihanna.


Tickets are sold at the door for $8 Adults, and $5 students. Concessions will be available all day.
