Band students, we look forward to seeing you at the 43rd New Mexico Pageant of Bands on Saturday, September 23, 2023 at Albuquerque Public Schools’ Nusenda Community Stadium at I-40 and 98th Street in Albuquerque. We thank you for your dedication to early morning, after-school, and weekend rehearsals, sectionals, band camps, parades, football games, and additional marching competitions throughout the Fall!
Remember to keep yourself hydrated during the competition. Water stations are located throughout the stadium and Albuquerque afternoons can be very warm. So be sure to eat, drink, and not lock your knees during the awards ceremony, but have a good time! If something does happen, emergency medical personnel will be on site for participants and audience members.
