Hamilton Southeastern High School will host the Royal Command and Guard Marching Band Invitational on Saturday, September 24, 2016. The public is invited to attend a fantastic evening showcasing high school bands in the Mid-States Band Association competition. High school bands from local schools as well as bands from around the midwest will perform. Up to 30 high school bands will be performing starting at 3:00 p.m. Each band will perform their competition show lasting up to 15 minutes. Bands will be judged and awarded based in the areas of music, general effect, and visual performance.
Band directors receive commentary from skilled judges, while students have the chance to watch many of the best high school bands and observe high levels of music and performance. Bands have an opportunity to demonstrate excellence, receive invaluable input and feedback, and gain experience performing. The evening concludes with an exciting awards ceremony.
“We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary for the HSE Royal Command and Guard Royal Invitational. We proudly represent our school and the pursuit of music performance excellence. As the host school we will be performing, “Shine” at the end of the evening for a non-judged performance.” stated Mr. Niemiec, HSE Band Director of Bands. HSE Royal Command and Guard welcomes new band director, Mrs. Audrey Torres. Mrs. Torres comes to HSE with 12 years of experience, most recently as Director of Bands and Franklin Central HS.
Hosting the Mid-States Band competition is an exciting opportunity for HSE schools as well as the entire Fishers community. These bands will impress spectators with their professionalism, music and talented performances.
