See the Bands Battle at the Trojan Classic on October 26
(October 13, 2002)
The Olympic High School Band Boosters are hosting the 23rd Annual
Trojan Classic Marching Band Contest on Saturday, October 26.
Currently, 30 bands from North Carolina, South Carolina, and
Virginia are signed up to perform in five size classes.
Last year, the
Classic had 27 bands. The first band performance was at 11:15. After
the first three classes of bands performed, the host Olympic High
School Band performed. Awards for the first three classes were given
at 4:00 pm. The next set of big bands started at 5:00, with awards
being about 8:30 pm. The schedule for this year should be very close
to that same time frame.
Admission is $5.00
for the entire day. There will be concession stands with BBQ,
hamburgers, hot dogs, and other snacks.
This is going to
be a huge event with lots of good music and performances from some
of the best high school bands. If you need additional information

Trojan Band web site.
