Dear Band Directors, Your band is cordially invited to participate in the inaugural Tour of Wake Marching Band Festival on Saturday, October 8, 2022. We envision this event to be a celebration of excellence in the marching arts and exceptional venues and hospitality for all students, instructors and spectators involved.
The format: the Tour of Wake Festival will be held between two sites, the North Festival hosted by Rolesville High School (Rolesville, NC) and the South Festival hosted by Willow Spring High School (Fuquay-Varina, NC). Each year one site will be held in the morning/afternoon and the other site held in the evening, allowing bands to elect to attend either one show or both. This year, Willow Spring will be the early site and Rolesville will be the evening site.
Why choose to do a double header? Special scheduling accommodation will be given to those bands who register for both shows, including eating times to ensure your kiddos are fueled for their best performance! Registration fee for each show is $125, but groups who elect to do both will pay just $75 per show (two shows for the price of one!) RHS and WSHS are based on the same design and campus layout, thus we will work to create a logistical flow that is similar between both sites. Finally, special recognition will be given to the band with the highest average score between both sites. The Tour of Wake Festival will use the NCBA state sheets. Below are registration links for both shows.
We hope to see you and your groups at the Tour of Wake Marching Festival! Sincerely, Kevin Still (firstname.lastname@example.org) Willow Spring High School
