Want to be part of something special? Minnesota Brass Indoor Drumline and MBI Winter Guard will launch their 2015 seasons this weekend, Oct. 25 and 26. Talented percussionists and color-guard performers interested in joining — or just learning more about — these elite indoor ensembles should plan to attend a day of rehearsal and fun.
Minnesota Brass Indoor Drumline kicks off the weekend with its first audition on Saturday, Oct. 25, from noon to 8 p.m. Auditions will be held at Park Center High School in Brooklyn Park. Minnesota Brass Indoor Drumline competes in WGI World Class events across the Upper Midwest and the WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. Audition packets are available for the battery and front ensemble.
MBI Winter Guard begins its fifth season on Sunday, Oct. 26. Join them from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the White Bear Lake Armory in White Bear Lake for a day of spinning and dancing as we set the cast for what promises to be an incredible 2015 season. Even if you’re just looking to try the MBI experience and learn some new twirls, you too are welcome. MBI Winter Guard is open to performers aged 16 to 22 and competes on the North Star and WGI circuits. All equipment will be provided on Sunday, but if you have something you prefer to spin, please feel free to bring it. Be sure to wear black rehearsal attire, too.
There is a $25 audition fee for each event.
