Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
The Pirate Classic will be held on October 5th at Estes Hudson Stadium in Winfield, Alabama. Our goal is to provide a positive, well-organized experience for your students so that they can receive feedback on their marching and playing and so that you as the director can have a hassle-free, enjoyable experience. THE UAB MARCHING BLAZERS WILL PERFORM IN EXHIBITION!
If you have attended the Pirate Classic before, you are familiar with our first class field. In the name of efficiency as well as making things easier on you as a director, we have changed several things from years past, including parking (buses will be parked so that they can more easily leave after the award ceremony), the hospitality room (lots of high quality foods will be provided, and there will be a catered dinner provided for you, your spouse, and your staff), and some of the awards.
If you have not attended the Pirate Classic before, this will be an excellent year to see what we have to offer! The primary judging philosophy will be centered on your effectiveness in executing your performance, not the style of performance you choose to execute.
