Concerts give the students the opportunity to perform and show family how much they have learned and grown in band class.
Performance opportunity for students and directors that offers an assessment of the quality of their performances by highly qualified experts in band performance. The only state-sanctioned event that provides a summative, standards-based assessment, designed to measure student performance as related to the goals, objectives, and grade-level competencies specified in the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. Its an opportunity for students and directors to perform for and learn from their peers in a formal concert venue. Providing a model that connects quality preperation with performance and supports the continued musical growth of students and directors.

Competitions

In competitions, bands are judged on criteria such as musicality, uniformity, visual impact, artistic interpretation, and the difficulty of the music and drill. Competition exists at all levels, but is most common among secondary school bands and drum and bugle corps. Performances designed for a competition setting usually include more esoteric music (including but not limited to adaptations of modern orchestral pieces).

Most high school marching band competitions occur in the fall when the majority of schools begin classes. To make competitions fair, bands normally split into different classes or divisions based on certain factors.
