2017 UMEA Red Rocks Marching Band State Competition

November 3, 2017
St. George, Utah



The UMEA Marching Band Committee runs six shows each year in Utah. They are (in this year's order):
Nebo Tournament of Bands, Bridgerland Band Invitational, Wasatch Front Invitational, Davis Cup, Mt. Timpanogos Competition, and the Red Rocks Competition-which also doubles as our state championship show.
Bands are classified by band size-NOT school size so a school that competes in 4A with athletics and other music activities could be classified anywhere from 1A to 5A, depending on the size of the band.

UMEA competitions use a panel of six judges; two music, two visual, one percussion, and one color guard. The music judges each account for 27.5% of the total score (55% combined). The two visual judges each account for 17.5% of the total score (35% combined). The percussion judge and color guard judge each account for 5% of the total score. At each show, there are four caption awards. Outstanding music performance is given to the band that scores highest on the combined total of the two music judges and the percussion judge. Outstanding visual performance is given to the band that scores the highest on the combined total of the two visual judges and the color guard judge. Outstanding Percussion is given to the band that receives the highest score from the percussion judge. Outstanding Auxiliary goes to the Color Guard that receives the highest score from their judge.
