Big Sioux Review XVII

The 2016 Big Sioux Review will be held on Saturday September 24h, 2016 at the Brandon Valley Athletic Complex. Bands from Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota will compete in the evening competition for trophies and awards in three classes. Classes are determined by the band’s size not school size. As in past years, the Big Sioux Review and the Tri State Band Festival in Luverne, Minnesota work together to give bands a wonderful opportunity to perform in two events on the same day. Tri State Band Festival starts with a parade and field performance during the morning and afternoon and that evening the Big Sioux Review will offer another opportunity for bands to play under the lights! The Star of the Prairie trophy is awarded to the band that receives the highest combined point total from both field competitions.
