MCBA LogoFord Field

Plymouth-Canton again had the honor of hosting the Michigan Competing Bands Association (MCBA) State Championships at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, on November 4th, 2017.  What this means is we provided volunteers to help the competing bands check-in, direct truck and bus traffic, lead the students through the tunnel to their warm-up locations and more.  It is an honor and a privilege to work with all the great bands as they performed their shows.

 

Volunteers for 2017

We will need many volunteers to make the States a successful and enjoyable event for ALL the bands that participate. Please make some time to join us on November 4th.
