2018 Cobb County Exhibition - Information for Students and Parents

Cobb County Exhibition

Monday, October 15th, 2018

McEachern High School

Cobb County Exhibition is a wonderful event that has been occurring for many years in our

District. It is an opportunity for our County Bands to see each other’s shows in a non-competitive environment and to receive comments from qualified adjudicators to help guide the growth of the band. To achieve this, the County runs two Exhibitions where half the bands perform for each other on each night with a college band performing at the end of the event. It is a fantastic event that is a wonderful opportunity for our students.

Our Exhibition is on Monday, October 15th. Please see below for the final schedule for the evening!

The teachers are used this request and will generally work to help you get this information. We will also give the students some time in class on Monday/Tuesday to help with homework completion.
