It is absolutely imperative that you complete steps 1 and 2 before attending auditions. ANYONE who has not will be dismissed.
The “Pride of Arizona” marching band schedule and season information is available at the web page above. If you make the line you will be responsible for adhering to everything on the schedule for the upcoming season. Please take a few moments to review it and clear yourself of all conflicts ahead of time. The schedule is updated regularly so continue to check throughout the summer.
The UA Drumline usually consists of 7-9 snares 4-5 tenors, 6 basses, and 8-12 cymbals. Members of the line must be students enrolled at the University of Arizona. We audition all members (even returning members) the first day of Drum Camp which occurs 1 week before Band Camp. The full Band Camp starts 1 week prior to the first day of Fall classes. Students who audition for the drumline are not guaranteed a spot on the line. Instrumentation is based on ability, not availability. Auditioning members who do not meet the expectations of the staff (including but not limited to: talent, attitude, and work-ethic) are dismissed from the line.
