2013 Auditions re now concluded, but you can read the below information from last year, to get an idea of audition expectations for 2014. This site will be updated with 2014 audition info in the Spring.
Drumline auditions consist (mostly) of full line playing, Saturday and Sunday (see calendar). There will be a brief individual process at the onset of auditons for Joel and Chris to hear anyone they have not seen play previously. Otherwise, auditions are spent playing in sections; learning, cleaning, and rehearsing 2013 materials. As the weekend progresses, students are notified when it becomes clear they are not a good fit for a certain section. However, students may choose to auditon for a different instrument once "cut" from their area of specialty. We encourage this!
All audition materials are available on our private website. Email Joel Brainard (director) for the link to these materials. firstname.lastname@example.org
