Texas Marching Classic
October 2019 marks the eighth annual Texas Marching Classic (TMC) band competition. Come participate with bands from across the state in UIL classes 1A-6A. Supported by the Cedar Ridge High School Raider Band, TMC is organized by educators with vast experience as contest participants as well as hosts – resulting in a competition that is unlike any other. The nationally renowned judging staff have experience as Bands of America (BOA), Drum Core International (DCI) adjudicators with a wealth of experience and knowledge that make TMC one of the competitions you won't want to miss.
Divided into three classifications (1A-4A, 5A, 6A), bands will compete to win the title of Grand Champion. Bands will also compete in the captions of Individual & Ensemble Music, Individual & Ensemble Visual, General Effect, Percussion and Auxiliary. TMC offers state of the art facilities, world class adjudicators, and a unique scoring rubric to provide timely feedback with insight into all aspects of your performance.
I highly recommend this event. It is professionally executed and evaluated. The TMC has a world class venue from the organization of bus/truck, spectator parking, routing of front ensemble, routing of winds/percussion to the most meaningful aspect of the event, the audio/visual of the live performance.

The Texas Marching Classic provided our band members with a great venue for performance, and well coordinated, relaxed environment to compete in. The parents were supportive, calm, and incredibly helpful throughout the day, without being overbearing. The judging panel was one of the strongest we saw all year, made up of some of the best educators in the country, and we left the day with great feedback on how to proceed for the remainder of the season. I highly recommend attending this competition if you are able to!
