Band Results for Queen Mary and Mesa/Arizona Games available

The official results for the band contests at the Queen Mary and Mesa/Arizona Games are available.

(Or click on Results in the menu at the upper left.)

*** PLEASE NOTE that how the results are being presented are being revised. Thanks to the tireless dedicated work of Kylene Tanner, the Band Registrar, the band results now include a complete break down of placings by all judges as well as the judges' names for each event. Also included is the precise date that the event took place, not just the weekend.

Currently, the games are presented on a single page in chronological order with no index. This will likely be changing as this new revision continues to be implemented.

And, yes, we are aware there is an anomaly in the judge's scoring of the 02/22/09 Grade 4 Quick March Medley. (Two 4th places.)

Ensemble Clinic to be held at Costa Mesa

As part of WUSPBA's adjudication certification program the Music Board will be offering again an ensemble clinic in conjunction with the Games at Costa Mesa. This clinic will be held beginning at 4 pm on Friday, May 22, and will be conducted by Campbell Naismith.

For those adjudicators who have already attended an ensemble clinic, but need to take the ensemble exam, we are offering the exam as well. It will also be at 4 pm on May 22.

Both the clinic and the exam will be presented at the Irvine Marriott Hotel, the host hotel for the Games. Meeting room numbers will be posted in the hotel lobby. Please note: we are beginning both of these at 4 pm to avoid conflicts with band rehearsals as much as possible. This was an issue last year and by providing advance notice we hope to give everyone sufficient notice to plan so as to be able to attend either function.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Bob Mason at his e-mail address: bmason [at]
