Snare openings for DCI world/open 2016?

Posted: Mon Jan 18, 2016 11:41 am



Hey everyone,

I'm looking for any snare drum holes/openings for this Summer. The last few months, I've been fighting for a snare drum spot on a top 12 DCI world class drum line, and unfortunately, I was cut this last weekend. I'm hoping it's not too late to find a position somewhere else!

If you have any information on lines still accepting video/face-to-face auditions, please let me know! Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Thanks!

I am 99% Sure that the following corps still have openings: Pioneer, Legends, Pacific Crest, and Raiders. Troopers still have audition info up on their website but IDK maybe they all do.

Also it might help you to maybe stay with that corps but in perhaps as a cymbal or rack player. I'm sure that they would like to see that you still want to be a part of the corps history and legacy even though you didn't make your first instrument. They'd probably really respect that and if you proved yourself on that part they'd most likely really, *really* consider you for next year, especially considering you made the first couple rounds of cuts is year.

Snare spots tend to fill up pretty quick. You should be able to find some front ensemble or maybe some battery spots open. Check the corps outside of the top 12 and look at open class. Open class a lot of the time don't set their entire lineup until January or February. Email the staff - sometimes they'll let you send in a video for a callback.
