Music for All is grateful that weather conditions allowed completion of the entirety of the Preliminary Competition at the Bands of America Regional at Bedford, TX. We were not as fortunate during Finals. Due to heavy rain and accompanying lightning, a weather delay began during Wakeland High School’s finals performance. After monitoring the storm system with the aid of local authorities and the THOR lightning warning system, the remaining Finals performances were cancelled due to continued severe weather in the area. We would like to thank all involved in ensuring the safety of band members, spectators, and staff during the weather emergency.
The overriding ticketing policy for Music for All/Bands of America events is that tickets are “non- refundable.” Nevertheless, where extraordinary circumstances, like severe weather, cause the cancellation of all or a substantial portion of an event, Music for All has established refund polices for that event and offered full or partial refunds as appropriate.
We request that our patrons note that the costs of the event (stadium rental, stadium personnel, judges’ fees and other expenses) were still incurred and paid by Music for All. We invite you to consider foregoing any refund, and instead donate the value of your refund in support of these expenses. Thank you in advance if you choose to donate your refund, and we will provide you with an acknowledgement of your charitable contribution.
