SUNDAY, November 4th is your chance!
Some of the greatest designers in our area will be available to support your early season brainstorming and help you develop ideas to get off to a great start with your 2019 shows. Randy Nelson, Michael James, Jill Moser, Stephen Porter, and Ryan Marsh will be on hand to offer our guard, winds, and percussion groups a place to share show ideas, music, costumes, flags, floors, and more to set you up for success as you begin your design process.
