The Cascade High School Band and Color Guard Boosters are excited to announce we are hosting the 29th annual Puget Sound Festival of Bands! The competition will be held on October 22nd, 2016 at Everett Memorial Stadium, located in Everett, Washington. We are extending an invitation to you and your band to perform and compete against some of the finest bands from around the Northwest.
We are pleased to announce that the Puget Sound Festival of Bands is being run again this year as an independent show. In accordance with the quality of the bands, we will have some of the country’s most respected judges. Two of the judges already assigned are Allan Kristensen and Dan Bryan.
Due to last year’s successful competition, we are anticipating the return of many of the same bands, plus others that have not been back in a while. Please take a few minutes to fill out the attached registration form and mark the Festival date on your calendar. The first 32 bands that send in registration forms will be ensured a spot in this year’s festival. With the exception of last year's returning overall winner, who will step off last, bands will step off in reverse order of the date completed registration forms are received. So send in those registration forms fast!
The registration fee is $300.00 for all bands if your registration, check or Purchase Orders are postmarked on or before June 17, 2016. The registration fee increases to $325.00.00 after June 18, 2016. Please visit our “DIRECTOR’S ONLY” registration website at: https://chsbb.ejoinme.org/PSFOBRegistration or we encourage you to mail in your registration form as early as possible. If you have to wait on confirmation of funding but would like to attend, please go ahead and send in your registration form without payment to hold your place and guarantee your early bird price! Please note the band size classifications will be based on size of the marching band rather than school enrollment. Careful consideration and re-evaluation of the classifications have taken place to ensure all competing bands have a quality and equal performance opportunity. Across the United States bands compete on member size for the fairest evaluation and adjudication.
Since we are unable to assist with housing for this years’ show, we strongly encourage you to contact the Everett School District or a surrounding district as soon as possible to make a reservation before the end of this school year.
