The College Band Directors National Association will present the Bulldog Marching Band’s performance of selections from the hit Broadway show “Wicked” at their National Conference March 16-18 in Kansas City, Mo.
The Bulldog Marching Band was one of only eight Division I marching bands chosen by a jury for this honor, which is given based on a juried evaluation of the submitted video compared to other submissions from around the country.
The Wicked performance was performed at the 2015 Sierra Cup Classic, in October 2015.
The other bands honored are University of Illinois Marching Illini, The Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band, the University of South Carolina Marching Band, the West Chester University Incomparable Golden Rams Marching Band, the Baylor University Golden Wave Band and the University of Arkansas Razorback Marching Band.
“We are honored to be named among these prestigious collegiate band programs, most of which are much larger institutions and are working with tremendous resources,” said Steve McKeithen, director of athletic bands. “This is a wonderful recognition for us and we are excited to not only get better, but to grow and become the definitive college band experience on the West Coast!”
