On behalf of Southern Illinois University Bands and Intercollegiate Athletics, we are pleased to announce the revival of the Music & Motion Marching Band Festival here at SIU! The event has been on hiatus for a few years during our transition to the new stadium; but our wonderful facilities are complete, and we can\'t wait to share them with you, your students and their families. Music & Motion 2011 will take place on Saturday, October 1 in the new Saluki Stadium. You will be pleased to know that we have worked cooperatively with Barry Houser at Eastern Illinois to avoid direct scheduling against their contest –
allowing those of you wishing to take part in both festivals the opportunity to do so. To that end, Music & Motion will begin at 10:00 AM.
We will employ a traditional 9-member judging panel, with awards in each class (including percussion, drum major and color guard). Each band will also receive a beautiful, custom-made participation award. Classes will be determined by band size.

For those of you who wish to promote a non-competitive philosophy, we are pleased to help. Our “Festival Class” will provide feedback on your performance with positive, encouraging comments to the members of your band.
