Marching Band Xperience

12th Annual Cleveland Critique and Competition

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Mark your calendars and start your season at a marching band competition that is set up to create a fundamentally successful experience for your students. It is our goal to assist each participating group to achieve new heights.

The purpose of the Cleveland Critique and Competition is to provide both a learning experience and a competitive process for each band that participates. As bands are refining and preparing for the marching band season at this time of year the goals are twofold: 1) offer a critique process whereby directors have an opportunity to meet with an experienced judge and receive suggestions/comments in a face to face setting; and 2) provide a setting whereby registered bands can participate in an NCBA sanctioned competition and experience the full benefit and experience of a sanctioned competition.

This summer the Johnston County Middle Schools with the help of Cleveland High School are coming together to provide opportunities for summer band camps!
