Poway Invitational Field Tournament

Poway High

School's Emerald Brigade will host the 21st Annual Poway Invitational Field Tournament

(PIFT) on October 19th at Poway High School's Titan Field. This is the largest

fundraiser of the year for the Poway High School Music Program. For PIFT’s 21st

Anniversary, Poway High School welcomes 20 marching bands and color guards from

all over Southern California to perform their competitive field show for a panel

of Southern California School Band

and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA)  judges

in front of a supportive tournament audience. The competition highlights music,

student teamwork, and an intricate display of team cooperation and discipline. Please

join this year's pageantry for one band or for the entire day. The San Diego State

University Marching Aztecs will also be performing at the end of the afternoon

and evening sessions. Gates open at 12:15 am with afternoon performances

starting at 1:15 pm and evening performances beginning at 6:30 pm. Hundreds of

volunteers, including parents, students and alumni are contributing their time

and effort to make this a successful and memorable event. City dignitaries, Poway High School alumni and PIFT sponsors

will participate in the afternoon and evening awards ceremonies.  Mayor Don Higginson presented the Sweepstakes

Award for the top band last year and will do the same this year. Refer to the

Poway High School Music Booster website ( www.PHSMB.com) for additional

information and updates.
