Application deadline for the 2008 All-American Marching Band is coming up next Friday, April 6. MENC: The National Association for Music Education announced this exciting new program for American high school student marching musicians in February.
MENC and SportsLink, producer of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, will offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to America's 90 most accomplished high school student marching musicians. The finest applicants will be nationally recognized through awards, media and performance as "All-Americans," just like their athletic counterparts. Drum Corps International will assist with audition adjudication of band members, as well as the coordination of the all-volunteer members of the All-American Marching Band Color Guard. Any musician who will be a high school senior in January 2008 may apply by the deadline on April 6, 2007. Visit for more information, application, and audition materials.
