50th Anniversary! Cobb musicians march into annual band exhibition

Cobb Marietta Marching Band Exhibition

For five decades, young musicians from across Cobb County have demonstrated their collective talents at the annual Cobb-Marietta Marching Band Exhibition. This year, the Cobb musicians will mark the 50th year of the exhibition with performances on the evenings of October 9 and October 16.

Featuring performances from each high school in the Cobb County School District, as well as Marietta City Schools, the exhibition takes place at McEachern High School’s Walter Cantrell Stadium and begins at 7 p.m. each night. The University of Georgia “Redcoat” Band will present a special guest performance on October 9, followed by the Georgia Institute of Technology on October 16.

Beginning in 1972, the Cobb-Marietta Marching Band Exhibition has become a local tradition, allowing band students and the community to see and hear performances from across the area.

Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets are available to purchase in advance here. Tickets will also be available at the gate. This year, the band exhibition is also going to be streamed live.
