Re: UIL Dictating Marching Music
...It's more like what an old HBD I worked for likes to say:
"We are BANDS marching."
No groups are considered for Honor Band that have not developed all three brass,woodwind, and percussion sections individually. Iíve never seen a brass band performing at TMEA Honor Band in the state listening sessions.
I think you are mostly correct when dealing with Region level.if the band gives a solid performance they should get a one. But at Area, bands who can provide different moods and colors by layering different exposed instrument groupings on the field and can do so effectively deserve to rank above those band who cannot do this. It isnít called marching brass and percussion. It is called marchIng band which does include woodwinds.
