Vanguard Callback Camp

Jan 19 - Jan 21
Christopher High School
The January callback camp is for those BRASS & PERCUSSION auditionees who received a 1 or 2 Grade level at one of the audition camps/one-day auditions. The camp will set the brass and percussion sections for the summer of 2018, as well as rank alternate spots heading into the winter camp season, and to continue learning with the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps. We are looking forward to your participation. Throughout the camp there will be individual auditions to decide final brass and percussion placements in the Vanguard, recommendations to audition for the Vanguard Cadets or invitations to return next year after gaining some additional experience. Just relax and do your best. Good luck!
