v-USBands Grand Finale Details Announced

 

Over 100 schools have participated in the 2020 inaugural v-USBands Virtual Performance season so far and as we head toward the State and National Championships, we have one more very special weekend to cap off the virtual season during the Nov. 14-15 Weekend.

USBands is excited to share with you additional updates to the v-USBands Grand Finale! For more information on the event or to register for the Grand Finale please click here. If you have any questions, please contact us at Marching@usbands.org

 

Senior Recognition

 

As the inaugural v-USBands season reaches its midpoint, we are proud to announce details of the v-USBands Grand Finale weekend which will be our “Salute to Seniors” and the graduating class of 2021 as well as a celebration of all of the work put into this extraordinary fall of marching band.

 

The v-USBands Grand Finale provides seniors and the whole band with one more opportunity to put on the uniform and perform their 2020 show and make unique memories that are sure to last a lifetime.

Our Senior Class deserves all the recognition they can get as the 2020 fall marching band season was definitely not what they had expected which is why we will dedicate our entire v-USBands Grand Finale Weekend to the Class of 2021.

 

The “Salute to Seniors” will be full of special recognition opportunities for seniors. 

We encourage band directors to send us a short video acknowledging their thoughts and memories of their senior class, along with a list of their senior class to be acknowledged as part of the v-USBands Grand Finale Awards Ceremony.

Senior acknowledgments from band directors can be uploaded here: Click Here

Parents are also encouraged to submit short Senior Shout-outs on video which will be compiled by band and available at FloMarching.com. Videos should be sent by 11:59PM Friday, Nov. 6.

 

• All videos should be: 15 seconds maximum

• Please refrain from using any music, ambient, or otherwise. Submissions with music will not be posted.

• USBands and FloMarching retain the right to not post any video for objectionable messages, use of music, or submission length  Click Here

 

Calling all Drum Majors

 

As a special way to cap off the 2020 v-USBands season, we will be hosting the first-ever v-USBands Drum Major Salute Challenge. All Drum Majors, Guard Captain and Student Leaders from participating groups in the 2020 v-USBands are invited to submit their very best salute routine and a Fan Favorite Poll on FloMarching the week of November 7-13 will award the most creative, enthusiastic, and possibly even silly salute. 

 

Drum Major Salute Challenge entries should be uploaded by 11:59PM Friday, November 6 at this link: Click Here

 

Special Grand Finale Competitive Criteria

 

On the field, there will be some minor additions to the v-USBands competitive platform. 

 

In addition to the Divisions 1-4 competition, we will also be rating all schools in a combined open competition where all schools, regardless of size will be ranked on their final v-USBands performance of the year. 

 

Finally, the top-scoring bands in each of the four Divisions will be evaluated by a separate panel of adjudicators to award the 2020 Grand Finale Virtual Champion

 

We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate a season like no other as we “Salute the Seniors” during the v-USBands Grand Finale.

Registration is open until Nov. 3 for any band, ensemble, or individual performer who would like to take part in the v-USBands Grand Finale on Nov. 14-15. 

 

Watch for additional news on the v-USBands Grand Finale to be posted over the next several days.
