The Stillwater High School band is participating in a Bands of America Fall Preview Experience at the Owasso High School Stadium today. A total of 10 bands from Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska will be featured.

BOA, an operating division of Music for All, headquartered in Indianapolis, is the nation’s leading presenter of educational events for school bands. The Owasso show is one of four Fall Preview Experiences and 21 total BOA marching band championships to be held across the country this fall.

“Fall Preview Experiences are designed to provide all the benefits of performance without the stress of competition,” said Camilla Stasa, MFA’s Director of Participant Relations, in a release. “Every band receives evaluation from a panel of music educators and marching band experts, immediately followed by a clinic with one of the evaluators. No awards or scores are given.”

The event will include a motivational session, picnic dinner and an optional extended clinic with the full panel of judges on Sunday after the show.

Gates will open at 2:15 p.m. with afternoon performances from 3:15 to 4 p.m. Gates will reopen at 6:45 p.m. for the evening session with performances from 7:45 -9:25 p.m. Tickets, at $10, will be available at the box office. For information, visit
