  11. 2018 Normal Marching Band Invitational

    I'm excited to see the combined band perform. Both individual programs have been great, so it'd be fantastic to have another Illinois band performing at a higher level, not to mention an even more exciting ISU finals.

  13. Community + West = awesome

    This is good news. I'm intrigued to see this. 6A at ISU and 4A at BOA events. It'll open up a new finalist spot at ISU as well for 1A-4A, and make 5A-6A just that more difficult.
  14. Community + West = awesome

  15. Hello! My name is Todd Schultz and I am in my first year at De La Salle Institute in Chicago. It is a Catholic school in Chicago's Bronzeville area. I am working on my goals for the program, which include bringing back a color guard program, and developing a competitive marching program. Down the road, I am looking to start a fall competitive program, a WGI Winds program, a fall color guard, and winter guard, and a winter drumline. At this point, the band has not competed on the field for many years. I am looking to assemble a staff for next year that includes a percussion instructor, a color guard instructor, and 2 field/music instructors. If you are an individual that is looking to work with a great group of students, and building a program from the ground up, please reach out to me at schultzt@dls.org. Thanks! Todd

  17. BOA Grand Nats

    Interested in which group didn't belong in your humble opinion?
  18. BOA Grand Nats

    Watching that final, it was pretty apparent there was a band that didn't belong in that group. The fact that Homestead was outside looking in was wrong. That said, easily the best semi-finals I've ever seen, and O'Fallon was outstanding. I hope they continue to improve, cause they would have been just as exciting to watch in that finals as others, if not more than at least one group.
