New Jersey Open bands head to new venue Sunday

State Champs being held at Carl Sandburg Middle School

The US Scholastic Band Association is looking forward to taking the New Jersey States Open band event to a new venue this Sunday as we spread the show out on a larger campus, accommodating the needs of bigger bands that come with more students, equipment and buses. In years past, the event was held in Union, N.J.

Lombardi Field on the grounds of Carl Sandburg Middle School in Old Bridge, N.J., welcomes 27 Open Class bands on Sunday, Oct. 24, for New Jersey States. Hosted by the Old Bridge High School Marching Band, the event begins at noon and includes two awards ceremonies:

Groups I, II and IV Open – 4 p.m.
Groups III, V and VI Open – 8:30 p.m.
