Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England had a memorable weekend as the US Scholastic Band Association held two mega days of state championship events.

The USSBA returned to everyone’s favorite place - Chocolate Town, USA – for the Pennsylvania State Championship on Saturday, Oct. 23.  Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa., welcomed 25 of Pennsylvania’s finest high school bands for the state title show while farther Northeast, New England bands dazzled friends and fans at the USSBA New England States Championship in Bridgeport, Conn.

The following day, nearly 100 New Jersey bands of all sizes lit up stadiums in three locations – Union, Sewell and Old Bridge - during the USSBA New Jersey State Championship series. Also Sunday afternoon, 12 New York-based bands celebrated during their special day in Uniondale, N.Y.

In all, nearly 230 groups brought their programs to the field in six states as the USSBA helps create fantastic memories for students during Week Seven of our 10-week fall run. We are getting down to the homestretch as the USSBA Northern and Southern states and 5th Annual USSBA National Championship rapidly approach!
