I was previously a Drum Major for an open class corps in 2015. After the season ended I was advised by my Tour Assistant/DM Instructor(Former DCI Drum Major) that with my skill set, I really need to be in a world class corps. For the 2016 season I auditioned for a corps that has its auditions way after every other corps and received a call back for the top 2 finalist. However, I did not receive a contract. Since the corps auditions were during the same weekend as my previous corps, I was not able to audition for my original group. Since I enjoyed the audition experience and fell in love with the corps, I decided to audition again in January of 2017 and received a callback for the next camp. Once again I did not receive a contract. The reason for me not receiving a contract was not due to a lack of skill/leadership, it's just how things ended up working out.
