Last year the Arkansas Marching Arts Association circuit was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic. But this year, AMAA will make a stop at Greenwood High School and feature multiple Guard Units and Percussion and Wind ensembles. You will not want to miss any of these incredible ensembles that are traveling to compete and perform. These students have worked hard, practicing after school to prepare their show, and have dealt with the hardships of the pandemic all year.
Due to the pandemic, masks will be required and you will have to purchase a ticket for either the Guard Block or the Wind/Percussion Black, or both. The competition will take place at the H. B. Stewart Arena on the Greenwood High School Campus. Tickets will go on sale Monday April 5th at 9am. Here is the link to where tickets will be sold at, https://www.armarchingarts.org/
