Music City invites you to come have the experience of a lifetime performing for drum corps fans across the country. You WILL have more fun than you could ever imagine, but you will also work extremely hard to become a great drum and bugle corps that is a perennial crowd favorite wherever it performs.


The corps is looking for 150 extraordinarily talented performers. Prospective members must also have an exceptional work ethic. The corps’ training camp consists of four weeks of 14-hour rehearsal days in the summer heat so peak physical fitness is essential.

Music City’s main audition camp gets underway at 8 PM on Friday, December 8 in Franklin, TN (20 miles south of Nashville) and concludes at 3 PM on Sunday, December 10. Housing and meals are provided. The corps will also hold one-day auditions in Memphis on Sunday, November 19 and in Knoxville on Sunday, November 26. The hours for both are 10 AM to 5 PM. Lunch will be provided.


The audition fee for the weekend-long audition camp is $150. The fee for the one-day auditions in Memphis and Knoxville is $75.

The membership fee for those selected for membership in the corps is $2,900 and is payable in installments from January through May. We hope you will come give it your best shot at auditions!
