Colts First 2005 Season Rehearsal A Success!

December 23, 2004

The first audition weekend for the Colts was held December 17-19 in Dubuque.

An early Christmas present of new Yamaha instruments was unwrapped Friday night by excited brass and percussion players and the work began. A record turn out for color guard and solid numbers and outstanding talent levels in brass and percussion led to a very successful weekend.

In addition to individual auditions, all sections worked hard to produce an exceptional Sunday afternoon Dog and Pony show for parents, supporters and each other. All who auditioned over the weekend had a chance to perform as a part of the 2005 Colts. Brass and percussion played the opening production together and the brass line performed a second piece from the show and worked on, but did not yet perform, a third. 60% of the summer music was being played by the brass line over the weekend.

Nearly 100 parents attended a new parent information meeting Friday night and a number of important volunteer projects were completed over the weekend by willing parents and supporters.

A few positions remain to be filled for the 2005 season in the low brass sections of the brass line. The next Colts rehearsal is January 14-16 in Dubuque. Information about location and further details will be posted at in advance of the rehearsal.
