WBA is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement for FloMarching to live stream the Western Band Association Championships on November 19-20, 2017!
The competition slate on day one, the Class Championships, will take place at two separate venues and currently features a total of 63 bands. FloMarching will be livestreaming from both venues, allowing viewers access to every competitive show that day.
On Sunday, November 20, the WBA Grand Championships combines all competitive classes at one venue. Competition is set to begin at 10 am PST, and run until the awards finale.
"I'm absolutely thrilled that FloMarching has the chance to live stream the Western Band Association Finals," said Wesley Sullivan, Senior Rights Acquisition Manager for FloMarching. "California bands represent the best the marching arts has to offer, and for some reason California doesn't receive a lot of attention from the rest of the country. With this partnership, we are proud to offer the WBA finals not only to family and friends of competing band members, but to all of our subscribers. We view this as a great opportunity to highlight the prowess of western bands for the rest of the country."
The Western Band Association Championships cap off a busy fall for FloMarching, in which it has established itself as a landing point for all things marching arts. Leading up to the live stream coverage, FloMarching will be highlighting WBA member bands and their path to WBA Finals.
"WBA is excited about our partnership with FloMarching that will offer a broader audience for our students and those interested in music education and the marching arts," said WBA President Troy Gunter. "It will allow parents and fans who cannot attend our championship event the opportunity to cheer on their band and will expand the reach of WBA outside California."
In addition to its event coverage, FloMarching will produce original documentaries on the marching arts elite ensembles, designers, educators, and performers, as well as technique videos from expert instrumentalists, and marching instructors, breaking news and live results.
