Bigger is not always better. It is the philosophy of the Sound of Silver Invitational to demonstrate that small and medium size bands can present interesting and entertaining halftime shows in a festival/competition environment. Bands will be judged on how well they perform... not the number of players. Judges will be instructed to give you constructive criticism on ideas to IMPROVE your marching band. There will be THREE division winners and one overall Grand Champion (regardless, of classification).
