2014 Texas Marching Classic

2014 Texas Marching Classic

Welcome to the annual Texas Marching Classic Competition!

 

October will mark the third annual Texas Marching Classic (TMC) band competition. Come participate with bands from across the state in UIL classes 1A- 6A. Supported by the Cedar Ridge High School “Raider” Band, TMC is organized by educators with vast experience as contest participants as well as hosts – resulting in a competition that is unlike any other.

 

Divided into three classifications (1A-4A, 5A, 6A), bands will compete to win the title of Grand Champion. Bands will also compete in the captions of Individual & Ensemble Music, Individual & Ensemble Visual, General Effect, Percussion and Auxiliary. TMC offers state of the art facilitiesworld class adjudicators, and a unique scoring rubric to provide timely feedback with insight into all aspects of your performance.

 

This October, participate in what has been referred to as “one of the best marching competitions” in Texas!


Important - Register by August 15, 2014
The process used to determine Preliminaries step-off times has been modified. This year each band's Preliminaries performance time will be set by a draw. The name of each band completing registration (including payment) by August 15th will be placed into a draw for the most desirable times and names will be drawn at random. Any band registering after August 15th will be placed in the field at one of the remaining performance times on a first-come-first-served basis.
TMC / UIL Classification Update
TMC has updated our band classification to use the 2014-2015 UIL classifications. Beginning with the fall 2014 competition TMC will utilize the same school classifications as the newly implemented 2014-2015 school year classes. We have implemented UIL 1A-6A classification where 1A-4A are grouped together (similar to past competitions). 5A bands will compete against other 5A band and likewise, 6A bands will compete against other 6A bands.
