On Saturday, Oct. 18, the West Ranch High School Wildcat Marching Band, and Band Boosters, present the 6th Annual Wildcat Classic. The Wildcat Classic is a Southern California School Band & Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) Marching Band Competition.
Seventeen high school bands are slated to perform, including most of the local Wm. S. Hart District championship Marching Bands. This is a great opportunity to see so many bands perform in one venue. In addition to Hart District schools, Lancaster, Palmdale, John F.

The evening will culminate in an awards ceremony with trophies presented in each division, as decided by SCSBOA judges. Division classification is based on the total number of musicians in the band, including brass, woodwinds and percussion.
