Cadets Percussion Section heading to Indianapolis

Battery, front ensemble to hold clinic at PASIC in November

Just a few months after the DCI World Championships marked the end of a memorable and successful Summer Tour, the 2010 Cadets Percussion section will be returning to downtown Indianapolis to once again wear the Maroon & Gold, sharing the discipline, talent, work ethic, excellence, and commitment synonymous with The Cadets.

Thirty front ensemble and battery percussionists from the 2010 corps will gather for a clinic/exhibition at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention from Nov. 10-13. Front Ensemble Supervisor and Arranger Iain Moyer applied for the opportunity to take part in the PASIC event which draws thousands of percussion enthusiasts worldwide for an eclectic blend of music and performance. Most any style can be found throughout the convention, with exhibits and performances aplenty.  

The Cadets Percussion Ensemble will be featured in a one-hour clinic on Thursday, Nov. 11 at noon. The clinic, hosted by Moyer and Percussion Caption Supervisor Colin McNutt, is designed for both performers and educators, and will provide an opportunity for participants to learn the philosophies and approaches that help The Cadets reach the highest levels of performance each and every summer. The corps members will indeed be wearing the traditional maroon & gold West Point style uniform, which will be an especially unique opportunity for 14 age-outs who will wear the “Superman Suit” one final time.  


This very special PASIC performance will serve as a kick-off to FIVE consecutive weekends of Cadet Auditions, Workshops, and Camps – and we want to help!  

 Following the Thursday afternoon clinic, we won’t be loading the equipment truck right away! Cadets staff and members are pleased to offer 30-minute private lessons to ALL 2011 registered percussion applicants at our booth on the PASIC exhibitor floor, anytime between Thursday afternoon and Saturday evening. We are pleased to offer the same service to ALL registered applicants (percussion, brass, colorguard) at our booth at the BOA Grand Nationals event just across the street, which takes place just one weekend after the USSBA National Championships in Annapolis, Md., on Nov. 5-7.  

How can you take advantage of a free pre-audition lesson at one of these three events? Simply choose your camp/workshop below, register online at today, and write to to sign up for your private lesson. It’s that easy! This is the chance of a lifetime for any Cadet hopeful, whether you hope to march in 2011 or beyond!
