The University Classic

The University Classic is an FMBC-sanctioned regional competition. Marching ensembles from around the State of Florida (and sometimes beyond) gather to perform in front of an enthusiastic crowd and are adjudicated by a hand-picked team of professional musicians and designers. The bands compete for a variety of prizes and recognitions in a friendly and positive atmosphere. After performing, each band receives video and audio commentary on their show to help them continue to improve.

Why the Classic?

There are dozens of competitive performance opportunities across the State of Florida. What makes the University Classic unique?

  • Our emphasis is on education! Regardless of the competitive aspects of the show, we want to ensure all students and directors have a great experience.
  • Our beautiful campus and full-size concrete stadium make a great performance venue for your students!
  • Our adjudicators are hand-picked from the best professionals the marching band activity has to offer!
  • Our unique "Classic Commentary" caption gets you inside the mind of an experienced show designer. This judge doesn't give a score and isn't limited to a caption; instead, you'll get a DVD of your performance with a running commentary discussing anything and everything to get your band to the next level!
