What is the University Classic?

The University Classic is an FMBC regional competition that usually takes place during mid-October. It has some great features that make it a solid choice for your fall schedule:

  • The judging panel is hand-picked from some of the best educators and adjudicators in the activity.
  • Each band receives a "Classic Commentary," an unscored custom video of your performance with running commentary by a nationally recognized designer.
  • A full director hospitality room is available after dinner.
  • Every participating band has a personal ambassador to lead you around campus, answer questions, and allow you to focus on your band instead of worrying about logistics.
  • Trophies and awards are given out for off-the-field performance, including sportsmanship and professionalism, emphasizing to your students the importance of these things.
