BAND FEST 2021
The Pinecrest High School Marching Patriots will host Band Fest at the John Williams football stadium in Pinehurst, NC on September 25th, 2021. North Carolina bands ranging from Class 1A to Class 4A regional bands compete, with six judges deciding the best bands in the areas of color guard, drum major, percussion, marching and more. Each band is scheduled to play a 15-minute set with five minute transition times in between. The Pinecrest band will appear last in an exhibition performance.
Bands will be assigned to 1 of 4 classifications, which will be determined by the number of playing members (including percussion) after the registration deadline. If more than 16 bands register, there will be 5 classes. Registration will be limited on the number of bands to adhere with the current Executive Orders regarding Covid-19.
Our judges’ panel consists of respected college professors, marching experts and directors from SE North Carolina scoring Music Performance 40%, Marching & Maneuvering 30%, and General Effect 30%.
Using Olympic Style Judging, 5 judges will cover a full sheet, the top and bottom scores will be dropped and the 3 middle scores will be averaged for a final band score.
Ratings will be: Superior 80 – 100 pts.; Excellent 60 – 79.9 pts.; Good 0 – 59.9 pts.
