BAND VIDEOS As many of you know, the cost of synchronization license fees required to make a video recording of a live marching band performance has sky-rocketed. This situation has left the Ohio Music Education Association without the ability to find a company that is legally and financially able to make video recordings at the OMEA State Marching Band Finals. This has also led to further changes in the OMEA video policy for 2018 and marching band participating in OMEA Adjudicated Events.
Here is what this means to the participating marching band: • Absolutely no videos will be produced by OMEA or an independent company at the OMEA State Marching Band Finals. (This means that there are no opportunities to purchase a video and no complimentary director’s copy will be provided.) • OMEA will provide an area at each State Marching Band Finals venue where director’s or their official designee may make a single recording of their band’s performance for educational use—at their own risk with no liability to the Ohio Music Education Association. It is up to the discretion of local event chairs to decide whether or not they can and will provide the designated location for participating directors to make a video for educational use.
SEVERE WEATHER PLAN In the event of severe weather: -Spectators will be evacuated to the area underneath the stadium. -The performing group on the contest field will be evacuated to the locker rooms underneath the stadium. -Performing groups that are warming up will take shelter underneath the highway overpass. -All other groups will be asked to seek shelter in their school buses or vehicles.
