Get Ready for the Bach to Rock National Battle of the Bands 2024!

2024 National Battle of the Bands

We are thrilled to announce the dates for the highly anticipated 2024 Bach to Rock National Battle of the Bands! This annual event brings together some of the most talented young musicians from Bach to Rock bands at all our locations across the country, showcasing their skills and passion for music.

Each school submits some of their top bands to perform a four-minute set. They can play a cover of their favorite song, or an original song from their band. Bands with original songs receive two additional points to their score.

Our judges will give points to bands based on their performance, stage presence, and ensemble precision! Winners will receive prizes from our sponsors and an award.

Mark your calendars and get ready to support your favorite bands!
