Pre-order MCBA State Finals tickets and apparel

Purchase state finals tickets in advance to save some money. Pre-sale tickets are Adult – $18 and Student/Senior – $13. That’s a $2 savings from the gate ticket prices. Note: Your marching band student does not need a ticket.

  1. Fill out the order form
  2. Checks should be payable to Rockford Band Parents
  3. Put your student’s name and “MCBA Tickets” in the memo line of the check
  4. Place it in an envelope with your student’s name and MCBA on it.
  5. Put it in the white Inbox next to Mr. Phillip’s office no later than the end of school Wednesday, September 27.

The orders will be immediately mailed to MCBA headquarters so NO late orders will be accepted.

You can also pre-order MCBA apparel online. Order before October 7; delivery will be at the Reeths-Puffer Invitational on October 28.
