This exciting event is sponsored by the Million Dollar Band and provides high school marching bands the opportunity to perform for other area high school bands in a supportive and friendly environment. The unique event allows each band to sit in the audience and watch the other bands in attendance perform their half time production, while the staff of the Million Dollar Band provides comments and feedback for each group. Don’t miss out on this fantastic performance opportunity!
We are pleased to announce that the University of Alabama Bands will be hosting the Eighth Annual CRIMSON CAVALCADE of BANDS on Tuesday, September 20, 2016. The event will be held at the Northridge High School Stadium. The Crimson Cavalcade of Bands is a NON-COMPETITIVE exhibition organized and hosted by the University of Alabama Bands to showcase the outstanding high school bands in our area. The purpose of this event is to provide an outlet for the marching bands in our area to share fine performances with other regional ensembles, and to receive constructive comments from qualified professional music educators.
Your band will not only have the opportunity to perform in exhibition, but also to watch and learn from many other ensembles. At the conclusion of the high school performances, The University of Alabama Million Dollar Band will perform. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity whether you intend to attend marching competitions or festivals later in the fall or just entertain your fans at your football games. There is NO COST to you to register for the Cavalcade and there is NO ADMISSION for parents and supporters to attend.
The MILLION DOLLAR BAND will have CD’s for sale for those who want to take the MDB home with you! Please stop by our table and help support the MILLION DOLLAR BAND.
