Huntingdon Marching Invitational

OCTOBER 3, 2020
The Huntingdon Marching Invitational is a quality marching band competition that supports the needs of today’s music education students. Our event is designed to place focus on the positive aspect and benefits of performance. We choose adjudicators that are second to none while providing a positive atmosphere. HMI 2020 will take place Saturday, October 3rd.  This event will consist of a Preliminary and Finals Competition. The Finals Competition will include the top 6 scoring bands in each division; each division will not compete against each other in the Finals Competition.
The HMI judges are well-established experts in the music education, marching and pageantry field with their educational philosophy and background taken into consideration as much as their career accomplishments. Bands receive recorded evaluation and score sheets from each judge. The emphasis is on the input the judge offers into the band’s program via the recorded evaluation. The HMI adjudication system is based on TBA Marching band Evaluation System. When using the four (4) person adjudication panel, the Music Performance Ensemble and Music Effect scores are multiplied by 1.5 to equal a possible three hundred points each with the Visual Performance and Visual Effect captions receiving a possible two hundred points each. The final score is achieved by multiplying the total points earned by .10.
  • Bands are classified by the number of MUSICIANS (Winds and Percussion) for Preliminary Competition. 
  • Competitors moving on to the evening’s Finals competition will compete for Finals Placement regardless of class. 
    • Class A 
    • Class AA
    • Class AAA
    • Class AAAA

Preliminary performance times are scheduled based on postmark date (we also accept faces and electronic entries) of application with the earlier postmark receiving the later performance time. 


Finalist bands will be announced at the conclusion of the Preliminary Awards Ceremony. The top 6 scoring bands from both Division I and Division II will perform in the finals competition.
