Drum Major audition materials are available after completing the registration process. For more information please .


Sorry, video auditions are currently closed.

Candidates should send the following materials:

  • Resume (including birthdate, contact information, and previous drum corps/marching band experience)
  • Letter of interest
  • Audition video

In the video, please spend 1–3 minutes introducing yourself and describing why you are a good candidate to be a Blue Devils drum major. Then, demonstrate your conducting using the lead sheet in this packet along with the excerpt mp3, which can be found in the downloaded folder (available after registering).

Once we have received and viewed your video audition, we will inform you of your status. It will either be a) you are invited to the full corps camp in January to continue your audition (meaning we think you have the talent and ability to make the corps, but need to see you live and in a full ensemble setting before making a final decision), or b) unfortunately we cannot offer you a spot at this time. No outright acceptance will be made via video auditions.

Final candidates will be invited to the Blue Devils January camp. Invitations will be sent via email no later than December 1, 2017.

Video audition fee: $150

Sorry, video auditions are currently closed.
