ISSMA regional competition is the stepping stone to STATE finals. The top 10 bands from each site (north /south) must advance to SEMI-STATE at Ben Davis HS. Then those top 10 bands advance to State Finalist Lucas Oil Stadium on November 3.
Spectators are only allowed to enter the stands between bands and it’s important to enter and find a seat as quickly as possible. Please keep all comments positive in the stands, as other bands’ fans will be seated all around you! All the bands work very hard and are doing their very best. Stand and cheer for other performances! No shouting individual names or corny things. Keep it upbeat and encouraging for all (AKA classy not trashy)
