Are you a Bands of America alumnus from 1975-2011? We are looking for you to come and be a part of the magic of Finale at Grand Nationals!

Music for All is currently taking applications for alumni to participate as Medallion Bearers at the 2012 BOA Grand National Championships, during the Finals Awards Ceremony, Saturday evening, November 10th in Indianapolis.

We are seeking a wide range of BOA and MFA alumni – graduates over the three-plus decades of BOA events - and will select Medallions Bearers who best represent the diversity of history, geography and storytelling of the "BOA story."

Medallion Bearers are on field during the Grand Finale awards ceremony, accompanying the MFA dignitaries as they present Finalist medallions to the Grand National finalist bands.

Remember:

Transportation and housing is not covered, but if you are already planning to attend, have participated in the past in BOA events and would like to be a part of the awards ceremony, carrying the Drum Major medallions for the Finale presentation.

Please note that MFA is unable to provide or reimburse any travel or housing expenses. If you are planning to only attend to participate in the ceremony, please understand that if event production plans change, the role of the selected medallion bearers may change.

Apply Now- Applications due by October 26th
