Excellence...Our Heritage, Our Commitment
The Union City Invitational is a quality marching band competition that supports the needs of today’s music education students. Out event is designed to place focus on the positive aspect and benefits of performance. We choose judges that are second to none while providing an atmosphere that is positive and electric. The 2024 Union City Invitational will take place September 28th. This EARLY date was chosen in order to give you and your staff an early read with quality input and feedback. Often times your best input comes late in the season when it is too late to react and consider altering techniques or design issues which could make a huge difference in the success of your students. We look forward to sharing this great experience with you and your students.

The Union City Invitational judges are well-established experts in the music education, marching and pageantry field with their educational philosophy and background taken into consideration as much as their career accomplishments. Bands receive recorded evaluation and score sheets from each judge. The emphasis is on the input the judge offers into the band’s program via the recorded evaluation. The UCI adjudication system is based on TBA Marching band Evaluation System. We use a (6) person adjudication panel using all of the sheets, the three (3) music captions receive 200 points each with the Visual Performance Individual and the Visual Performance Ensemble scores averaged for a possible 200 points and the Visual Effect caption receiving the other 200 points. The final score is achieved by multiplying the total points earned by .10. You can see detailed information about this system as well as sample sheets at this TBA link. http://www.tennesseebandmasters.org/marching-band/
Along with the standard Visual and Music captions, we will be evaluating Color Guard, Percussion, and Drum Majors. We will be using the TBA Score Sheets for these various captions. Please see link above to look in detail.
Bands are classified by the number of WINDS for contest.
Band Classifications will be modified after Registration closes.
