MTZ Music Marching Games this weekend

The Mt. Zion Music Marching Games will be this weekend on September 30. There are 12 schools competing, starting at 3 p.m. The Mt. Zion marching band will perform an exhibition at 6 p.m.

“We are putting the final touches on hosting our annual Marching Music Games,” Mt. Zion Band Director Patrick Ward said. “Right now students and parents are signing up for the shifts for the job they will do that day, and our chat people are making sure that we have everything ordered and scheduled for delivery. We have a good crew of returning parents who have done this for several years so it feels like a well-oiled machine.”

This year there will not be an indoor percussion competition. There will only be the field show competition outside on the turf.

Ward’s favorite part of the games is he loves seeing the wide variety of performances that each student ensemble brings to the competition.

“We have a range of ensembles performing with our smallest band having 20 members and our largest band having over 150,” Ward said. “A huge spectrum. However, what is consistent between all of these groups is the pride on the students’ faces after their performance. “

The cost of admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors (65+). Children three and under are free.

“If you have never been to a marching band competition, please consider coming out to MMG on September 30,” Ward said. “The shows that the groups put on are really entertaining and demonstrative of the dedication and hard work that the students and their directors put into their shows. We hope to see you there.”
