We are adapting the Burns Cup MBF to confront the many challenges bands in our area are facing now that we are recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our interests are in the pedagogy of music education and the success of each student. Therefore,  we are making the following changes to this year's festival:​

  • Moving to Scholastic Sheet Style Judging

  • No class rankings this year, "Best in Show" in each caption only

  • Bands will be awarded a Superior, Excellent, or Good rating

  • Band scores will be private, no public group tabulation sheet
