2013 GTP Auditions

 

Building on its highest placement and score in history, Green Thunder Percussion (GTP), the Independent Open Class percussion ensemble presented by The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps, is now recruiting serious male percussion students in the Chicago-area for the 2013 winter season!

The GearWORKS: Green Thunder 2013 Auditions will be held on Sunday, October 14, with the Call-Back camp held on Sunday, November 4 -- both set at Rosemont Elementary School in Rosemont, Ill.

 

Green Thunder Percussion's membership is open to all male students between the ages of 13 & 22. Auditions will be held on snare, tenor, bass, keyboard, and percussion/piano.

The organization concurrently serves as an ideal preparation resource for those interested in auditioning for The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps. Through performance opportunities in competitive and non-competitive environments throughout the Midwest, GTP provides a percussive outlet for advanced players under the instruction of some of the most talented and skilled educators in the nation.

 

The GearWORKS: Green Thunder 2013 Auditions will further present the musical and visual approach utilized by Green Thunder Percussion. The competitive performance season continues through April 2013, and prospective members who audition and are accepted should plan on regular attendance and a serious personal commitment to the group. Almost all scheduling conflicts can be worked out, and certain activities such as school performances and college auditions will take precedent. These will all be worked out at the beginning of the season. All performance dates (TBD) are required.
