Drum Major Auditions

posted Feb 11, 2010, 10:26 AM by Eric Drew
Drum Major Auditions for the 2010 Fall Marching Season will take place on Friday, February 26 at 5:00pm in the NBHS Band Room.  Candidates must have completed one season of Marching Band and be in good academic standing in order to apply. Applications must be completed and turned in upon arrival for the auditions.  Anyone accepting the position must make a commitment to attend every rehearsal and performance for the 2010-2011 school year.

Audition format will be as follows:
    I. Conduct the National Anthem
    II. Informal Interview
    III. Marching Exhibition
    IV. Prepared Conducting

The Auditions will be performed for a committee of 3-6 people chosen by Mr. Drew with various backgrounds qualifying them to take part.  The commitee will select 1-3 drum major(s) as deemed appropriate with the goal being to select the strongest team of drum majors to lead the band musically and personally.  Results will be announced upon conclusion of the auditions.

The Auditions could last from one to three hours.  If there are more than five candidates, the pool will be narrowed to five students after round one (Conducting the National Anthem).

A help session will be held for all interested students on Friday February 12 at 4:00pm in the NBHS Band Room.

Anyone with questions should contact Mr. Drew
