posted May 22, 2012, 1:09 PM by Eric Drew
Drum Major Auditions for the 2012 Fall Marching Season will take place on Friday, June 15 at 3:00pm in the NBHS Band Room. Candidates must have completed year 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 2012-2013 school year and must place band as a priority over other school activities.

    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 committee 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 should last about three to four hours. If there are more than five candidates, the pool will be narrowed to five students after round one (Conducting the National Anthem).

Help sessions will be held for all interested students on Monday, June 4; Monday, June 11; and Tuesday, June 12 at 2:30pm in the NBHS Band Room.

Anyone with questions should contact Mr. Drew.
