Cadets November Audition Camp moves to Reading, Pa.

Nov. 19-21 shift to Reading High School to allow for more space

Reading High School in Reading, Pa., will host The Cadets on Nov. 19-21 for the 2011 Audition Camp.

The Cadets have locked in a location for their Nov. 19-21 Audition Camp, with plans to take the corps to Reading High School in Reading, Pa., a bigger facility that can more easily accommodate a greater number of applicants.

Expecting anywhere up to 500 applicants during the full audition camp this fall, the corps administration set out to locate a larger camp site that would allow every attendee to have the optimum experience with The Cadets. Camps starting in December will return to Woodstown High School in Woodstown, N.J. 

“We love Woodstown and look forward to holding all our remaining camps at the school,” said Justin Heimbecker, Assistant Director of The Cadets. “But for our first camp, which can draw up to 500 applicants seeking spot in the corps, it gets a little tight on space for us.” 

Reading High School, located at 801 N. 13th Street, Reading, Pa., has multiple gymnasiums and ample space for larger groups of every section, he added. While the traveling distance from Philadelphia International Airport is a bit longer for those traveling by air (about one hour, fifteen minutes), the trade off for more space in November is a good one. 

Brass and percussion musicians and colorguard performers are invited to audition for the 2011 Cadets at the full Audition Camp in Reading. On Nov. 19, registration will begin at 7 p.m. with the weekend kicking off at 9 p.m. The camp wraps up on Sunday, Nov. 21 with Ensemble Rehearsal and a ‘show and tell’ open to family and friends early in the afternoon. Times soon to be announced. 


Questions concerning the audition process and camps should be directed to Heimbecker at, or by telephone at (610) 821-0345, Ext. 112, or Melissa Barlow at, or (610) 821-0345, Ext. 115.
