Rocky Mountain Invitational

Saturday, October 14, 2023

LaVell Edwards Stadium, Provo, UT


Rocky Mountain Invitation is moving to a full day, regional competition! Please make arrangements now if you wish to attend due to the change and the logistics that will be required.

The Rocky Mountain Marching Invitational is about excellence and opportunity.  Participation offers students that chance to be recognized for the pursuit of excellence alongside their peers, as well as being provided quality evaluations and opportunities to observe other bands – all in a positive, affirming and celebratory atmosphere.

Bands will compete and receive awards by classification, (same as their UMEA class).  The scoring system uses a panel of nationally esteemed judges, each covering a specific aspect of the performance.

Awards are given in each of the separate competitive classes with each classification being awarded the following:

  • Outstanding Musical Performance
  • Outstanding Color Guard Performance
  • Outstanding Visual Performance
  • Outstanding Percussion
  • 1st Place
  • 2nd Place
  • 3rd Place
