We are actively recruiting for the upcoming 2021 season that will allow this 2-time Drum Corps Associates (DCA) Class ‘A’ World Champion and first time DCA Open Class Finalist to become your drum corps family like we have for hundreds of others during the history of Tradition.

We’re searching for talented performers and dedicated student leaders in all sections to build the new edition of the 'Tradition’. If you know of a student who might fit the bill for the Tradition, please have them join us at our next rehearsal.

Do you love music, competition, and travel? We still have a few positions available and would love to have you join us. It’s not too late to register to attend auditions! So if you are looking for something to do this winter, and on weekends this summer, we hope to see you!

Please arrive early for check in at 8:30am because you don't want to miss out on rehearsal starting promptly at 9:00 a.m.! There is a mandatory $40 camp registration fee for all participants of the Open House.* Prepay using the pay tuition link on this page.

If you would like to audition, you will need to complete the registration form. Once you have registered, you will receive a password to access the Audition Materials page. (Please retain this password for future reference) You will then be able to download all the necessary exercises for auditions.

Auditions are open to all skill levels ages 14 and older. If you are under 18 or still in high school, parent/teacher/coach consent is required to join Tradition.
