The Bands of America Grand National Championship is coming up soon, and if you're a music ed major, you're invited to attend the event at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for free!

College students studying music education at the undergraduate or graduate level will have the special opportunity to spend the day at the BOA Grand National Semifinals on Saturday, November 11, getting a behind-the-scenes look at the event while learning from leaders in the fields of marching music and music education.

Led by author and motivational speaker Fran Kick, this experience is specifically designed for future music educators to see, hear and feel what's possible in today's marching music activity.

Since debuting in 2009, students from nearly 150 colleges and universities from across the country have attended future music educators events at the BOA Grand Nationals and the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis.

Highlights of each year's gathering includes a behind the scenes stadium tour and a “Meet-the-Masters” session, which gives attendees the opportunity to participate in a roundtable discussion and network with leaders in the music field.

Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Students wishing to attend should RSVP online as soon as possible.
