Upper Darby welcomes USSBA Indoor on Saturday

Two week countdown to Champs; get in on the action!

Heading into early spring, the training ground of winter is in the past and talented performers are gaining confidence. They are enjoying and selling their shows, and the entertainment value for Indoor fans is at its highest. indoor flag

That’s the word from the US Scholastic Band Association Indoor team as they prepare for this Saturday’s event in Drexel Hill, Pa.  Thirteen percussion, colorguard and dance groups will perform at Upper Darby High School on April 2, the seventh weekend of events in the USSBA’s 10-week season.

“It’s really remarkable to see these young colorguard performers and percussionists grow with every weekend that passes,” said Tara Lee Bryant, band relations manager for the USSBA. “It’s evident with every toss, dance move and note played these kids made a commitment to work hard and deliver their unique and creative programs with passion and energy.”

This Saturday’s event is the second to last regular season show before USSBA Indoor holds its second annual Indoor Championship on Saturday, April 16.

Upper Darby welcomes family and fans to their event that begins at 5:55 p.m. and runs through the evening.

There is no better feeling for a student performer than stepping onto a stage at a venue that takes your breath away. In 2010, that happened time and time again as nearly 60 units participated in the inaugural USSBA Indoor Championship held at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J.

The USSBA is returning to the world class facility in just two weeks when colorguard, percussion and dance groups from across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast vie for titles in multiple classes.

“From the concourse to the warm up areas, to the actual performance floor, the Sun National Bank Center provides a caliber of venue fitting for a Championship,” said Jon Swengler, band host relations representative for the USSBA. “The feedback on the arena in 2010 made it very apparent that groups loved the experience, and they wanted to return.”

It’s not too late…limited performance opportunities remain for the USSBA Indoor Championship!
