From a Revolution press release: Revolution held its second audition camp during the Dec. 16 - 18 weekend. Marion High School has become the new home for the drum corps in 2006, having hosted hundreds of prospective members auditioning for the brass, percussion and color guard sections. Revolution director GM Kuzma, was very pleased with the progress from the first audition clinic in November. "The overall turnout of prospective members between the two camps is nearly double what we saw for the 2005 auditions, which is very encouraging as we gear up for yet another successful season in 2006," Kuzma said. Jason Myers, color guard caption head, was very encouraged by more than 60 color guard prospective members coming out for the guard between the two auditions. "The number of talented students who showed to audition for the color guard section was awesome. Many talented students from all over the state came and worked very hard for only a few spots," Myers said. The drum corps rehearsed and held auditions throughout the weekend. This culminated in a Sunday "show and tell" performance by each section of the corps for the parents, local band directors and fans in attendance. Returning snare drum player from the 2005 season, Phil Martinez, said, "The facilities are great, the educational staff is very productive, and the volunteers are so generous and hard working." The next Revolution camp will be held the weekend of Jan. 13 - 15, again at Marion High School.
