Orange City, Iowa — The Sheldon Marching Orabs will be one of more than twenty high school marching band from four states to take the field in Orange City Saturday for the 2018 Dutchmen Field Championships.

Normally the Orange City event takes place the same day as the State Marching Band Festival in Orange City, but that was not the case this year. Marching Orabs Director, Cliff St. Clair says it’s going to be nice to not have to rush to make both competitions.

The Dutchmen Field Championships mark the final competitive event of the year for the Marching Orabs. St. Clair says the kids are happy to see the competition season come to an end, and for good reason.

While Saturday’s competition in Orange City may be the finale to the Marching Orabs season, St. Clair says it’s just a transition for the Orab musicians.

Saturday’s Dutchmen Field Championships are hosted by MOC-Floyd Valley, and will take place at De Valois Field, on the campus of Northwestern College. The event is open to the public, for a small charge, with gates opening at 2:15 Saturday afternoon, with the first Class 1A Band, South O’Brien, taking the field at 3:00. The Marching Orabs are scheduled to perform Saturday afternoon at 5:00.
