“The festival has been held annually at APSU for more than a dozen years,” says Dr. Ann Silverberg, chair of APSU's music department. “It's a great opportunity to watch many of the region's finest high school marching bands compete with each other for awards.

“The event will bring hundreds of student musicians to the campus along with their families, friends and band directors.”

According to Andrea Brown, competition coordinator and director of athletic bands at APSU, the event “has the potential to be an incredible recruiting opportunity for the band, music department and the University.”

The cost of admission is $8. Admission for APSU students and faculty is $5 with ID. Children 12 and under will be admitted free.
