This season will not look the same for Stetson Marching Arts this season.
Being called the "Past, Present, and Future Tour", the groups will feature alumni, current members, and any prospective future members. The shows, "Blast From The Past Alumni Spectacular!" will feature favorites from previous seasons.
Director StampedeStetson said about it, "About have way through the previous season, I started a new job. With this job I was unable to devote the time needed to keep the group at their expected level. I let down all of our kids, and I won't be able to resume regular rehearsals this season, so we decided to go down a different route for Season 89."
All the groups will still be attending as many shows as possible, but no rehearsals will take place on tour. Instead, time will be spent putting on community performances and free time, ensuring that a fun tour is the primary goal of this season.
With this new format, it is expected that this will be the first time since the inaugural season (72) that any of the groups will not make finals.
