The Wednesday, Dec. 23 event is sponsored by the Japan Marching Bands Association and the Okinawa Branch of the National Baton Twirling Association.

Tickets at the door are ¥500 more.

Performing bands include the Nishihara High School, Oroku High School and Nago High school. Tickets are on sale at Lawson’s, and at record shops across Okinawa.
