Drum Corps and College Wind Ensemble Trips

Recommended Posts

So I have been really looking into auditioning for a drum corps for next year as this will be my age out year. My question is the college I attend, our Wind Ensemble which I am a member of is going to Australia to perform next July. Would a Drum Corps let me miss a few weeks or am I wasting my time by wanting to audition? I know I waited to long to audition but I really want to get some Corps experience as it would benefit me tremendously.

If you're good enough, yes.

Depends on the corps. 

Some might allow you to be an alternate for when you are available. if you are getting academic credit for your college ensemble trip it bolsters your chances of negotiating. But all of this premises whether a hole needs to be filled. (I was once asked to fill a hole by an eventual DCI World Class champion that year five days before Finals. Things happen. P.S. I had to turn it down as I had aged out by six weeks according to the rules of that time.)

Remember Rocky Point Holiday was the fruit of such a trip when U. MN commissioned Ron Nelson for something special when they went abroad.
