Hi everyone! I hope all of our students have enjoyable Mid-Winter Break! I’ve heard a few people asking these questions so I thought I’d start here and address a few.

Drum Major auditions - I’m looking at Tuesday, April 10th after school for an informational meeting. The following Tuesday will be the audition day. This is for current 10th graders only. Drum Majors need to have at least 1 year of UHSMB experience and attend UHS. IB students can be section leaders but not drum majors as I need to meet with Drum Majors during the school day often.

Section Leader Applications - I would like anyone interested in being a section leader to submit a resume and letter of interest explaining why you want to be section leader and your qualifications to me via email on April 19th. You will also need to audition on your instrument with a Solo & Ensemble type of piece for me on April 25th after school 2:30-3:30pm. If you were a section leader in 2017 you MUST re-apply. Spots are not guaranteed year to year.

Drum line auditions - more info on this after I have secured a new Drumline instructor for next year but I am looking at May 24th for auditions for next year’s Drumline. Spots are not guaranteed year to year and you are not guaranteed to “move up” only. As of now, every spot on the Drumline is open.

I will have printed out application/info sheets as we get closer to these dates.
