The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps welcomes brass and percussion members, as well as returning and prospective members of the color guard, back to Chicago for our 2013 April Camp held the weekend of April 26-28, 2013.
This camp will facilitate the brass and percussion sections in continuing their winter progress on visual and musical technique, as well as refining music content to the corps' 2013 production. The April Camp will also be the first time the corps ventures outside to dive into the process of learning drill, as well as working through a portion of the 2013 competitive drill.
The color guard's instructional team will take a closer look at color guard members and hopefuls to further solidify the 2013 cast. Color guard attendees who were called-back from the fall Clinic/Audition events in Chicago, Ill. and Austin, Texas must submit a $100, non-refundable camp fee to participate in the April Camp. If awarded a position, the participant's camp fee will go directly toward his 2013 financial commitment.
New prospective members of the color guard, who did not attend a fall Clinic/Audition event, are encourage to join us for the first time in April and will be required to submit a $125 non-refundable camp fee.
Prospective members of the color guard (first-time attendees) should complete the following steps:
Brass and percussion students attending the April Camp are reminded of their physical training and medical requirements outlined in February and should also expect to be tested on their Trifit-XT training over the weekend.
ALL students are also required to communicate attendance and travel arrangements with his respective caption head AND the corps' office (see contact info below). The next installment of the Membership Payment Schedule is due on Sunday, April 28, 2013 (see 2013 Audition and Membership Information Packet for details).
