Eighty high school marching bands will participate in this year’s the Indiana State School Music Association semi-state marching band festival Oct. 27.
Each band is entered in one of four classes according to school size.
Twenty bands from each of the four classes will perform at one of the semistate sites: Ben Davis High School, Pike High School, Decatur Central High School and Franklin Community High School.
The bands qualified for semistate by being one of the top 10 bands in their class at their regional contest Oct. 13.
The semistate festival will determine the 10 bands that will represent each class at the 40th annual state marching band finals Nov. 3 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The schedules for each of the semistate sites are available at www.issma.net.
