Nebo schools participate in the Red Rocks State Marching Band Championships in sunny St. George. Congratulations to all of our Nebo High Schools for their amazing performances at Utah Music Educators Association (UMEA) State Marching Band Championships held on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Dixie State University! It has been a long, dedicated season for our teams and directors. The season begins the day after graduation each May and includes logging hours of rehearsals, camps, rehearsals, parades, game-time performances, rehearsals, invitational, rehearsals, tournaments, rehearsals, and the championship performance. Getting all of the pieces into place for a marching band performance is an amazing feat and spectacular to watch! 

The Maple Mountain Marching Band entered the competition as Region Champions and claimed Third Place at State! This team is coached by Joshua Hurst.

The Salem Hills Marching Band was awarded the State Scholastic Championship and the Outstanding Color Guard Award. This team is coached by Ryan Adair. 

Congratulations on a job well done!

The Fine Arts Director, Karen Kidd, enjoyed the Championship from the stands, and said, “Watching the different components come together is amazing! Each school brought their own vision and a production unique to their students. The quality of the instrumentation, the artistry of the color guards, the general effect, and the personality that each student puts into the performance all blend into polished performances that showcase the high caliber music programs in our schools.”
