Olfert to Judge Marching Contests
October 14, 2011
Dr. Warren Olfert, Associate Professor and Director of Bands at North Dakota State University, has been invited to adjudicate at two marching band contests in October. The Mountain West Invitational Marching Contest is Saturday, October 15 at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho. The Kentucky State Marching Contest is hosted by the Kentucky Music Educators Association and will be held Saturday, October 29 at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green.
Both marching contests are highly recognized on a national level and the invitation to adjudicate is a prestigious assignment. Olfert will review band performances, in particular their marching execution, musical performance on the field, and the overall combined effect the marching, music and visual aspects have on the viewer.
