Music Selection-Colorguard/Winterguard and Dance/Drill Teams

Colorguard/Winterguard and Dance/Drill Teams may perform anything suitable for adjudication. Each group is responsible for providing the music being performed an acceptable media format such as IPod, laptop, MP3 player, or phone with a 1/8” output. CDs can be used, but be sure they are formatted to play in another player!
