The purple (morning/afternoon) show will feature bands split into four classifications based on the band's size. Bands will perform in order groupings based on their size classifications. The smallest Class (based on band size) will perform first with the largest class performing last. Class awards will be provided for the top four bands in each classification ensuring that every group will receive a placement trophy. Additionally trophies for outstanding soloist(s), visual performance, musical performance, and general effect (regardless of groupings) will be presented giving each school the opportunity to compete across classifications for the top honors.
The gold (evening) show will feature bands split into classifications based on the school's size. However, the performance order will be based on a random draw and adjudicators will not be given any indication about what class size division each band is placed in. The top three returning bands (based on scoring) from the 2023 Golden Regiment Invitational marching festival will automatically be granted the final three evening performance time slots. The random draw will be recorded and published through the Golden Regiment Invitational YouTube channel in the weeks prior to the competition. Awards will be provided for the top four bands in each classification with a maximum of four bands in each group. Additionally, trophies for outstanding soloist(s), visual performance, musical performance, and general effect (regardless of groupings) will be presented. And to round out the cross classification competition, Grand Prize awards will be presented for the top three placements overall.
