Southeastern Virginia Music Games (SEVMG)

Southeastern Virginia Music Games (SEVMG)

On the last Saturday of September, the Hickory Marching Hawks host the Southeastern Virginia Music Games, or SEVMG. This event is a competition of bands from around the region. It features renowned judges and enables the audience to view many exceptional bands.

Being the host band, the Hawks do not compete on this day, though they do perform. In the past, we have been able to also feature local colleges as exhibition bands.

Our competition goal is to provide bands with invaluable tapes from a distinguished panel of adjudicators early in the season, to ensure continued improvement throughout the band season. These panels are selected based on their experience in the judging field, as well as their writing experiences. It is our feeling that you and your students will benefit greatly from such a wonderful panel. We are looking forward to having a wonderful audience in the 7,500 seat stadium here at Hickory HS. It is also our hope that you are able to enjoy some of the many activities available in this area. Virginia Beach is 25 minutes away, and Williamsburg’s Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg are just an hour away.

HBPA Parents:

This event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Marching Hawks. To make the day a success, many of the parents and students are needed to volunteer during the day. Being a volunteer on this day does not require you to work all day. You are able to volunteer for a shift during the day. Without the participation of our parents and students, we would not be able to continue with the games. Information about the games will be discussed during the HBPA meetings in July, August and September. Please help make the SEVMG a success!
