BANDS OF AMERICA GRAND NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
November 12-15, 2008
 

Preliminaries

More than 500 bands have competed this year in Bands of America competitions. 91 schools, ten of which were from the Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area, brought their bands to Indianapolis to compete and earn the right to be "Grand National Champion". At 12 noon on Friday, November 14th, our Marching Tigers performed at the Grand National Championshis for our chance at this lofty and prestigious title.

This year, 33 bands were selected to continue on to the Semi-Finals. Quality performances earned Beechwood and Mason a trip to the Semi-Finals; the only Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky schools to advance.

Semi-Finals

At 8am on Saturday, November 15th, our Marching Tigers performed at the Grand National Championshis in Semi-Finals competition for our chance to be Class A Champions and continue on to the finals.

After a long and anxious day of waiting, the results were read and the Beechwood Marching Tigers earned a third place finish in Class A. This was an exceptional achievement behind a first place finisher that was Grand Champion in every KMEA competition and Class 3A Kentucky State Champion in 2008 and a second place finisher that was a 2 Time Class A BOA Regional Champion, earning Outstanding Music Performance, Outstanding Visual Performance and Outstanding General Effect in both Regionals.

The Class A Grand National Championship has been held by a Kentucky School for 4 consecutive years (including Beechwood in 2006). This shows the competitive level of marching bands in Kentucky and, from what I witnessed this year, should continue for years to come.

CONGRATULATIONS ALL!
