We are excited to be competing in our first BOA Championship of the season this weekend. This is a two-day championship. We will start both days at FHS for rehearsal, and then proceed to Lucas Oil Stadium for our performances.
This event has a Preliminary Round and a Finals Round of competition. Our preliminary performance is on Friday at 5:15 PM. We will not know our score until the SATURDAY awards program at 3:45 PM. There are over 70 bands that perform during Friday and Saturday Prelims. We will NOT find out if we make finals until about 4:30 PM on Saturday. If we make finals, or performance time for Saturday night will not be confirmed until around 5:30 PM on Saturday. Our finals performance can be between 7:30 and 11:00 PM.
Please plan to be flexible and supportive as this weekend moves forward.
The format of this competition is not the same as the other competitions. BOA Regionals have two rounds (prelims and finals), and are very exciting for our students to participate.
Please plan extra time to get down to Lucas Oil Stadium to watch us perform. Give yourself 90 minutes to park, get a ticket, and find your seat.
Watch the Live Stream
If you cannot make it to Lucas Oil Stadium, Music for All has a partnership with FloMarching that puts the entire event online with their live stream! Streaming plans start at $12.50/month.
