October 9, 2012 by Anonymous

Event Date: 
Sat, 10/13/2012 (All day)

The seventh annual Unleash the Sound Marching Festival hosted by Aledo High School’s Bearcat Regiment will be this Saturday, Oct. 13 at Aledo Bearcat Stadium.
Fifteen area high school bands ranging from 3A to 5A will perform their contest shows for a distinguished judging panel and spectators. This marching festival provides participating bands an opportunity to perform in front of judges and receive critique which will help prepare the bands for UIL competition scheduled for Oct 20 at Burleson High School. Division ratings will be awarded based on the following criteria: music (54 percent), marching (36 percent), percussion (5 percent) and color guard (5 percent).
The top ten bands will advance to the finals and will perform again that evening. While the judges decide the final scores of the preliminary competition, the audience will enjoy an exhibition performance by the Bearcat Regiment. After the Finals the renowned UTA Maverick Marching Band will perform.
Trophies will be awarded to the top three bands and caption awards will be given to the outstanding color guard, outstanding drum majors, outstanding percussion, outstanding music performance, outstanding marching performance and outstanding general effect.
Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $6 for students and senior citizens. The gates open at 10:30 a.m. The Preliminary marching performances begin at 12:15 p.m. The Aledo Bearcat Regiment will perform an exhibition at 4:15 p.m. and Preliminary Awards will begin at 4:30. Finals kick off at 7:15 p.m. Finals awards begin at 10:15 p.m. In addition to the marching contest, there will be a Colorguard Standstill contest in the gymnasium from 10:55 a.m. - 12:55 p.m. and a Percussion Standstill contest at Coder Elementary School from 10:10 a.m. - 1:25 p.m.
