The Stones River Championship seeks to provide bands with the best possible educational experience they can receive at a band competition. In addition to the contest adjudicators, bands will also have the opportunity to meet with a critique team after their stadium performance. This team will provide immediate feedback to directors and students while viewing the video of their just completed performance. Class, division and Grand Champion awards will be presented at the end of the evening. The Stones River Championship travelling trophies were generously provided by former Siegel High School band boosters, Tim and Margaret Bowling.
The high school bands participating in the 1st annual Stones River Championship are Smyrna, La Vergne, Cascade, Shelbyville Central, Coffee County, Franklin, Hillsboro, Centennial, Station Camp, Summit, Marshall County, Giles County, Cumberland County, East Hickman, Lewis County, South Doyle, North Side, Macon County and Heritage. To close the contest performances, the Siegel High School marching band will perform their 2015 competition show entitled The Desert Road!
Proceeds from the Stones River Championship will benefit the Siegel High School band and go toward repairing and upgrading the band's instruments and equipment.
The award winning Siegel High School band, under the direction of Alex White & Alex Sears, is beginning its thirteenth year of existence, and is proud to have been an award-winning marching band each and every year.
