LAFAYETTE CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS
17050 Clayton Road
Wildwood, MO 63011
It is with great pleasure that I extend to you and your band this invitation to join us for the 28th annual
Lafayette Contest of Champions on September 26, 2015.
I am excited to announce some new and exciting changes to our festival for this year. In an effort to improve both you and your students' experience at Contest of Champions, we are adding a clinic session after each preliminary band's performance. These clinics will be student-centered and educationally focused video clinics led by clinicians who will watch your performance and then work with your band inside Lafayette High School. You will have the choice for these clinics to include your students or only your staff.
In addition to the clinics, performance order will be based on date of entry. The only exception to this will be the previous year's grand champion will perform last in preliminary competition.
Our show is prelims/fmals format. Divisions will be based on band size. We will mix the divisions together for the preliminary performances. The judging panel will not be aware of band classification prior to each preliminary performance. The purpose is to have the bands judged on the merit of their performance regardless of class. Ten bands will perform in Finals competition.
Please note that the entry deadline is Friday, August 21st.
To register, follow the directions stated below. For additional information, please call636.733.4100 ext. 44004 email me at BalogBrad@Rockwood.K12.MO.US. I look forward to seeing you and your band on September 26, 2015 at the Lafayette Contest of Champions!
