Colts Preseason

2019 Preseason & Audition Weekend Dates

The three-day audition camps and single-day auditions camps provide full auditions and evaluations of prospective members with the intent of finalizing membership in the Colts. You will receive detailed instruction on all aspects of your skills with the intent of offering you membership, or guidance on how to become a member of the Colts. After attending one of these auditions you will receive a letter officially notifying you of your membership status in the corps. Click “JOIN” above for further details.

Offers of full membership will be extended following each audition. If there are special circumstances that make attendance at one of these events impossible, first RSVP and then contact your caption head to express your interest in a spot, and to discuss preparations you should make for the next rehearsal (for color guard, this could be in April following WGI).

Three-day events typically begin with check-in and unloading at 6:00 p.m. on Friday and conclude around 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. One-day events typically start with check-in and unloading at 8:00 a.m. and conclude around 6:00 p.m.

Details on our audition schedule will be available soon!

Auditions take place in Novemeber and December for all secitons. Recall auditions and rehearsals will continue in January and February for brass, January for percussion, and April for color guard. When a student is offered membership in the Colts, attendance at these events is expected. All members will be expected to attend the April rehearsal in Dubuque.

Attendance at events, and communication about attendance, is expected of all Colts members throughout the preseason.
