Seventy-one high school marching bands from around the country took turns at Lucas Oil Stadium competing for a coveted finals spot at the Bands of America Super Regional on Oct. 19-20 in Indianapolis.

After its preliminary performance of "Loved & Lost" on Oct. 20, the Rosemount High School Marching Band learned a few hours later that they were one of the 14 bands selected to perform in the finals. The nearly 300 students who make up the band performed well and finished the competition in ninth place.

"The Bands of America Super Regional in Indianapolis is one of the premier marching band competitions in the country. We were proud to represent our school and community on a national stage, and proud of our students for performing two incredible shows back-to-back on Saturday," director Bojan Hoover said.

"This is always a great opportunity for our students to learn from some of the best bands in the country," director Leon Sieve added. "It is the icing on the cake to be fortunate enough to make finals, especially realizing that the other bands that made finals are from Indiana, Illinois, Oklahoma and Missouri."

The 2018 field marching band season concluded with Rosemount's BOA participation.
