Welcome to the 2023 SCSBOA Festival Season!

Here are some helpful resources/links to guide you through a successful festival experience:

Helpful Reminders for 2023:

  • Regardless of your band’s classification level, your one required selection from the list may be from any level. High school, middle school, elementary school – all selections on the list will qualify. Remember that you must perform two selections to receive a rating.
  • You may still perform three selections if they fit within the time limit.
  • You may just perform one piece if you like and still receive comments.
  • Many have found the commentary more valuable to their program than the rating, and receiving comments only is always an option you may select, no matter how many pieces you are performing. There is no list requirement to receive comments only.
  • If you have selected to do sight-reading, the director may determine the level of the selection to be read, if desired.
