invite you to attend
the golden river marching festival
October 17th, 2015
Greetings and welcome to the website for our 21ST annual Golden River Marching Festival. We hope that you are planning on attending the 2016 Golden River Marching Festival on October 15th. It is our desire that your visit to Golden River is a most pleasant one. Please feel free to email me with any questions that you have about Golden River Marching Festival after viewing this website.
As the ultimate supporter of your school band program, you are aware of the many rewards that can be obtained through a student’s participation in the band program. You know that high school bands across our nation are filled with the brightest and most creative students in our schools. At Golden River, we honor these students and their directors for the many hours of hard work that they have put into their band program. These students are the leaders of tomorrow. We also recognize the many hours of hard work put in by the band boosters and band parent organizations. Most of the band programs would have a very difficult time without the support from these groups.
Our aim for Golden River Marching Festival is for directors, students and their parents to have a rewarding experience in both performance and adjudication. Our facilities provide that experience with a spectacular view of the field for the audience and a large receptive audience for the performer. We offer the best in concessions and hospitality. Our only complaints in the past have been the dressing facilities. This year we are upgrading and changing the dressing room location to resolve that problem. We want to make everything from the moment your group arrives until the moment they leave a rewarding experience. Please visit the "2016 Overview" page to see our improvements.
Our adjudication digital recordings and comments are very constructive and student/director friendly. The adjudicators are told from the beginning to give specific comments on how a band can achieve its goal of improving the performance. We understand that 100% attendance is a rare occasion for any performance and that instrumentation is not always where we as directors would like it. Therefore, the adjudicators are very sensitive to these issues.
Again, please feel free to email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
