The Forrest Band of Blue traveled to Yellow Jacket country in Hartsville last weekend to perform in their third competition since the season began.

Their performance of Phantom of the Opera tunes won the Band of Blue first place in their class, Best in Class for Visual Ensemble, Best in Class in Field Commander, and first place overall (16 bands) to bring back to Chapel Hill the "Sweepstakes" trophy.

This weekend, the Band of Blue will travel to Giles County where they will perform not once….but twice. 

As a reminder, the Band of Blue will be hosting their 2nd Annual Middle Tennessee Small Band Championship on Saturday, Oct. 13 beginning at noon. 

The competition is going to bring more than 2,000 people to the Chapel Hill community and is the primary fundraiser for the band.  We hope that you will come out and support the band and we promise that you'll enjoy the entertainment.
