About The Audition
Don't be afraid to audition!!!
Every year hundreds of qualified members don't come to the audition because
they're nervous about something typically being 'cut.' We don't 'cut' anyone
(read on to find out more). We go to great lengths to make your audition experience
rewarding, educational and worthwhile. We encourage every person interested in
the corps to come to camp! Remember, talent and skills are important, but work
ethic, tenacity, and communication skills are often more so. Also, there may
be opportunities you haven't considered! If your first choice doesn't work out,
perhaps a different instrument or section will need someone.
How Does the Audition Work?
Over the course of the Audition Weekend, we ask all members interested in the
Blue Stars to attend a weekend rehearsal.
During the weekend the ensemble will learn a few musical selections, and the
color guard will learn a short feature. You'll experience a full weekend of top-notch
instruction with some of the finest teachers in the country.
By the end of the weekend you'll have had an opportunity that most never have
the courage to pursue; you'll have experienced a full weekend of drum corps.
You'll have a know what it means to be part of a great ensemble. You'll eat
and sleep with the corps, work hard, and become a better performer. You'll have
an idea of what it's like to work with one of the finest drum corps in America.
Once More, Don't be Afraid to Audition!!!
We regularly hear from people who say "I'm not good enough for drum corps," or
"I'm afraid to audition." If you are at the point where you are reading this - you
need to come to camp. You have very little to lose and everything to gain.
Everyone auditioning for the Blue Stars will have a great experience. You will
meet some great people, you will learn great musical and guard skills, you will
know more about the Blue Stars, and you will feel fabulous because you did something
in pursuit of your dream. Do not stay home! Find out what this is all about. Come to camp.
