BRASS AND PERCUSSION AUDITIONS

For Brass and Percussion, all listed auditions are part of a two-step process. All November and December camps are designed to introduce you to the drum corps experience as well as to allow you the opportunity to audition for the corps with the hope of being invited to our step two camp in January. It is highly recommended (although not mandatory) that you attend more than one of the many camps offered in November/December to increase your exposure to our instructors and materials. If invited, you must attend our January camp in Denver for the final audition which will determine membership in the Corps.

COLOR GUARD AUDITIONS

Color Guard auditions will also follow a two-step process. All November camps and the December 1 camp in Mission Viejo will constitute round one, and if invited, you will be able to attend round two in Denver during the weekend of December 20-22. In December, if accepted, you will be offered a contract to participate in the Corps. The Blue Knights encourage all members of the Guard to participate in the Winter Guard activity. Therefore the next camp the guard will be expected to attend will be our camp in April. If accepted, you are expected to fulfill all homework assignments and financial commitments to the corps including making scheduled tuition payments.

ABOUT THE AUDITIONS

Our audition process is one of "hands on training." During the course of an audition camp weekend, you will experience what it is like to be a part of the Blue Knights and meet the staff and support personnel responsible for assuring your experience will be second to none in the activity. Key to the drum corps experience is finding an organization where you feel welcome, and confident in the staff you will be working with throughout the year.

When making the decision to offer you a spot in the Blue Knights, we will consider your talent level, attendance, overall attitude, physical health, and commitment to paying your fees. The individuals who excel in each of these areas make the strongest Blue Knights. Regardless of the outcome of your audition, we are confident you will leave camp having had a great experience learning from the best instructors in the activity.
