May 20, 2019 — We are pleased to announce that we have secured the use of John A. Farrell Stadium, on the campus of West Chester University, as our new, non-Hershey, Marching Band Championship stadium! We are very excited to be working with the WCU music and facility staff to bring one of our end of season championship events to this 7,500-capacity stadium. The WCU site will replace the Allentown (J Birney Crum) stadium from the past three years.
Performance divisions, locations and approximate show times, are as follows:
Saturday November 9, 2019
Hershey Park Stadium – Patriot A & American A / Patriot Open & American Open
West Chester University – Yankee A & Independence A / Yankee Open & Independence Open
Sunday November 10, 2019
Hershey Park Stadium – Liberty A & Liberty Open
Approximate starting times for all A shows will be around noon and all Open shows around 5:00 pm. Awards at Hershey should be completed by at least 10:30 pm both evenings, if not sooner. For WCU, there is a noise ordnance time of 10:00 pm where there can be no more playing in the stadium. Awards will most likely be around 9:30 or 9:45 pm. Exact times of each show and many other championship details, will be developed over the summer.
Please contact Ken Brown (Marching Band Administrator) at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions about our marching band division.
