Once again it was a beautiful evening for marching band this past Saturday! 8 different area bands competed at the packed Evansville Harrison High School’s Romain Stadium, in a contest that was intense and very entertaining!  At this point in the season here in Indiana most high schools are starting to put down the remainder of their drill as they begin to clean heavily.  Because of this the Harrison show is always great because the audience starts to get a clearer picture of where each show is headed and the story they are trying to tell.  Thanks to the Harrsion Band Boosters for being fantastic hosts and showing us all a great time!  Below you will find a brief rundown of the shows performed, the results including scores, and as a bonus a featured photo of each performing group!

NOTE: The Harrison Invitational used the traditional ISSMA classes by school size of A, B, C, & D.
