Critique and Competition

The 9th Annual

Cleveland Critique and Competition

September 28th, 2019

Mark your Calendars and start your season at a competition that is set up to create a fundamentally successful experience for your students.  It is our goal to assist each participating group to achieve new heights.   

Spectator admission is $10 per person.  Children 5 and under are free.  Cash and all major credit cards accepted.  The first band goes on at 10:45.

Food and drink will be available at the event.   Click here for a copy of the full menu of all the items will will have available at the show.

The purpose of the Cleveland Critique and Competition is to provide both a learning experience and a competitive process for each band that participates. As bands are refining and preparing for the marching band season at this time of year the goals are twofold: 1) offer a critique process whereby directors have an opportunity to meet with an experienced judge and receive suggestions/comments in a face to face setting; and 2) provide a setting whereby registered bands can participate in an NCBA sanctioned competition and experience the full benefit and experience of a sanctioned competition.


The performance schedule and a map of the facility are available at the links below.
