Hello everyone. I am a senior in high school this year, and its my second year marching with the Raiders Drum and Bugle Corps, an Open Class DCI corps as upper split lead. It truly is too early to be thinking about this but I am. Following this year, I have plans on going on to the bigger World Class corps. My friend (the other upper split) got into Cadets and used Carnival of Venice as his piece. I don't plan on doing Cadets, (between Santa Clara Vanguard, Phantom Regiment, or Bluecoats), but I know I am going to need a piece that not only shows range, but that I am capable of playing a variety of styles. And preferably one that is suitable for a sound thats on the brighter side of the spectrum. It is early, but I figured thinking about it now, and having it ready will be better then cramming the three-four months I have off from DCI finals in August to audition camps in mid-November.
Also anyone have experience in auditioning for World Class corps? I know Spirit does play in Spirit of Atlanta but he hasn't been on in a while....
Anyway thank you in advance
And btw I would love to play lead, but thats not my primary goal. My goal is to get in and experience World Class before I can't anymore.
