Marching Brackets, Round 2: Copland Region

This round of voting is now closed.

Welcome to the Copland Region of the 2016 HornRank Marching Brackets! You can read about how we seeded shows or vote in the Shostakovich Region, the Reich Region, and the Barber Region. The second round closes on Saturday, March 26, 2016, at 11:59 P.M.

William Mason performs their 2013 show "Til Death Do We Part" during the
2013 Grand National Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

8 seed: William Mason 2013, Til Death Do We Part, 92.90, 6th at Grand Nationals
5 seed: Carmel 2013, Totem, 95.45, 2nd at Grand Nationals

William Mason 2013 won’t turn many heads with its placement or score, but it is one of the most memorable shows of recent years because of how original it was. This is one of the only shows in recent memory that was meant to be just plain entertaining and funny, and William Mason did just that. Not many shows will make you genuinely laugh out loud. Carmel's 2013 second place finish at Grand Nationals with “Totem” was well-deserved, even if we still can't quite figure out what that white smoke was.

6 seed: Hebron 2015, 360, 96.25, 3rd at Grand Nationals
7 seed: Mason 2015, Somewhere, 95.35, 4th at Grand Nationals

This second round matchup is between the third and fourth place bands at this past seasons Grand Nats. Hebron’s “360” won the hearts of fans across the country in their first trip to Grand Nationals, posting the highest score in BOA history in semifinals while finishing 3rd in finals and taking the music caption. Noah Khan's incredible sax solo carry Hebron into the second round, but can it take them into the third? William Mason’s highest placement in school history had fans deeply entertained throughout as their West Side Story-themed “Somewhere” displayed the vast improvement Mason has seen since their first Grand National Finals appearance in 2011.

Make sure to also vote in the second round of the Shostakovich Region, the Reich Region, and the Barber Region.
