The University of Tennessee at Martin Skyhawk Marching Band will host the 11th annual Skyhawk Marching Band Invitational 2:30-8:30 p.m Saturday at Hardy M. Graham Stadium.
The invitational is one of the largest single-day events held on the UT Martin main campus.
Seventeen bands from Tennessee and Kentucky will compete before a panel of nationally-known judges.
Bands are divided by size for competition, with a small band considered 55 marching winds or fewer. Award presentations will conclude the day’s activities.
Admission is $10 for ages 12 and older, including UT Martin students, and $5 for children 5-11 years of age. Children ages 4 and younger will be admitted free. Concessions will be available for purchase.
