Urban Sophistication, LLC's H.B.C.U. (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) “Show Band Competition” concept is to celebrate, support, and recognize the excellence of the marching bands combined with the unique academic experience of attending an H.B.C.U.
This event will not only showcase the bands, but it will also provide patrons the opportunity to speak with a variety of H.B.C.U. representatives. They will be able to gather admission, financial aid, and other collegiate information. Our goal is to expand the event to include an H.B.C.U. choral competition and a step-show.
A portion of the funds raised by this annual event will support the music, dance, band departments, college tours, and scholarships offered by Urban Sophistication, LLC.
Our vision is to provide a platform for H.B.C.U.’s to attract future graduates, and expose San Antonio,Tx to the diversity that H.B.C.U.’s offer. Since the beautiful city of San Antonio currently holds the record for the largest Martin Luther King Jr. march in the nation. This three-day event will be held the weekend leading into the MLK Jr. march.
