Outreach continues for the inaugural season of the Cadets2 drum corps with positions are still available in the brass, colorguard and front ensemble for the 2012 season.cadets2brass

The March 3–4 rehearsal is a big weekend for the corps at South Mountain Middle School in Allentown, Pa. as the corps gets ever closer to the full roster for the coming summer.

“Cadets2 are giving a whole new level of involvement to high school students who want to have a Cadet-quality experience but have had barriers to their performance in the national touring ensemble in the past,” said Rich Hammond, program coordinator of Cadets2. “We believe we’ve reduced the time and financial commitments to manageable levels, and through our 16–25 age limit, we have created a youth-based organization in the model of The Cadets which resounds with educators and parents.”

Brass and mallet percussion performers are encouraged to attend the full weekend camp which begins with registration at 9 a.m. on Saturday and continues until 2 p.m. Sunday. If potential members are interested in participating in Cadets2, but are unable to attend the full two days of rehearsal, please contact Melissa@YEA.org or Rich@YEA.org for alternative scheduling.

A separate brass audition is scheduled for Bridgewater-Raritan High School for Wednesday, March 7 from 4–7 p.m.

Interested members can register for the March 3 or March 7 audition HERE.

Meanwhile, the first colorguard audition is set for Sunday, March 4 between 11 a.m.–1 p.m., with potential members meeting at South Mountain Middle School and then being transported to the YEA! headquarters just minutes away in Allentown for a brief audition to evaluate their weapon, flag and/or dance skills.

Future Cadets2 colorguard auditions for the 2012 guard are being scheduled for schools in the region including North New Jersey on March 11, South New Jersey on March 18, Red Land High School in Camp Hill, Pa. March 25 and the USBands Indoor Championships in Trenton on April 14. There is no fee for the Cadets2 colorguard auditions. Watch for details on the exact time and location for each of these opportunities for you to become a member of the newest drum corps in the activity during the summer of 2012.
