Program: Becoming One 

Our 2023 Production is entitled, “Becoming One.” The SEMO Marching Band was greatlyimpacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. That fall football season was cancelled and marching band was moved to the spring semester for a spring football season. In addition to having 3 band directors in 4 years, there was much change and adversity. This year, our student leadership decided to celebrate our changing band culture in addition to overcoming theadversity the band faced throughout director changes and the pandemic. Our production reflects that struggle, represented in the beginning of our show, then morphs into a rejoicing and hopeful, celebratory mood. Source material includes, “Medea’s Dance of Vengeance” by Samurai Barber; “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi; “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” as sung by Bette Midler; and we close with “Fly to Paradise” by Eric Whiteacre.

Who can enroll in BOA Championships?

Enrollment is open to all high school bands on a first-come, first-served basis.

How is performance order determined?

Preliminary performance times are scheduled based on a random draw. Applications received and paid for on or before January 31, 2023 were eligible for the initial draw, after which performance times are based on postmark of application, with earlier postmarks receiving the later performance times. The previous year’s Regional Champion has the option to choose its Prelims performance time. Finals performances are scheduled by a random draw on site.

How is classification determined?

Bands of America has a four-class system (A-AAAA). Bands are assigned to classes based on enrollment levels in grades 10-12. 

Why aren’t the classifications announced?

By nature, appreciation of arts requires subjective reactions. We do not announce or publish band classifications, before or during events. Our intention is to not draw attention to classification, so as to eliminate expectations of a band’s performance based on class, including those of the judges.

How are finalist bands selected?

REGIONALS:The top 12 scoring bands, regardless of class, are invited to compete in the evening’s Regional Finals.

SUPER REGIONALS:Super Regional Championships accept 14 bands into Finals. The 14 bands are chosen according to the following procedure: the five highest scoring bands in each of the two Prelims judging panels, regardless of class, plus the next four highest scoring bands from both of the two Prelims, regardless of class, will advance to Finals. If a Class Champion is not among the highest scoring bands advancing to Finals, they will be invited to perform at Finals in exhibition.
