Florida Bandmasters Association District 12 Marching Band MPA
Extra Credit and Honor Band Information
(for all students attending for extra credit)
Reminder Letter (click here)
On Saturday, October 20, 2018 the Florida Bandmasters Association will have the 2018 Marching Band MPA. The event will take place at Denison Stadium in Winter Haven. Denison stadium is located behind Denison Middle School. Students are encouraged to attend this event with their families for extra credit. It is a great time to see one of the many opportunities students will have in high school through their band program. The proceeds from the gate will help offset the cost that our program will have to pay towards Solo and Ensemble festival in the Spring. This is a fun evening that I am sure the whole family will enjoy.
This year several of our DSA students will be performing for the National Anthem Middle School Honor Band to open up the festivities.
*All students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian for the entirety of this event.
Where is this Event:
What to Bring:
Sweatshirt - it tends to get cooler in the stands as the evening gets darker.
Money – Depending on where you park, there may be a parking fee. Admission to the event is $5 students and $8 adults. There is a concession stand inside for when you get hungry.
Stadium Cushion - The stadium seats get hard after a few hours. Some people like to bring a cushion to make it more comfortable.
THIS IS THE 2017 Schedule ...the 2018 Schedule will be posted when it is sent out!
