FORMAT - Oregon Large Group Festival/Contest Guidelines will be followed.  - Oregon Band Director's Association Adjudication System will be used. - Oregon Band Director’s Association Required Literature List will be used.  These are available on the OBDA website. STATE CONTEST QUALIFICATION For Oregon bands only:  Bands receiving two "I" or "I-" ratings will be eligible to apply and submit their performance tape for one of the "open" tape pool spots in the 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A or 6A divisions.  Out of state schools meeting this standard will also be publicly recognized. DIVISIONS AND AWARDS Two divisions (large and small) will be created, based on dividing bands into two groups based on school size.  Medium-sized schools may request the larger division.  1st and 2nd place trophies will be awarded for both divisions. Ratings will not be posted but point totals will be emailed (school names removed) after the contest.  Each group will receive one recording of their performance, three tapes with verbal critiques and a conductor videotape.  These will only be available at the conclusion of each time block (1:00 PM and 6:00 PM). ADJUDICATION Three performance adjudicators and one sight-reading adjudicator will critique each group.  All bands will be judged at the OBDA 5A, 6A (4A) standard for competitive purposes but scores will be converted to each school's appropriate classification for qualification for the OSAA State Band Contest.  Bands will be required to sight-read.  Scores will be added to the performance scores to determine trophies (60 of 360 points) but will not affect ratings.  An additional adjudicator will critique conductors on videotape.  This will have no impact on ratings. The conductor critique/video will be included in each school’s packet along with judge’s sheets and cassettes. REQUIRED LITERATURE AND TIME LIMIT One selection from the appropriate classification shown on the OBDA list. Titles may be substituted with approval of the OSAA state contest director. Remaining selections can be from any source. The updated Literature List can be found on the OBDA website. Titles from previous lists are also eligible. Time limit: 35 minutes to set-up, perform and exit. Bands must play a minimum of 18 minutes of music, especially Oregon bands wishing to qualify for State. AWARDS PRESENTATION Students, directors and the public are invited to attend a short performance by CCC Wind Ensemble at the end of the day at approximately 5:00 PM.  Awards will be presented at this time, concluding by 6:00 PM.
