Vanguard Cadets Brass
Membership Information


Thank you for your interest in joining the 2018 Vanguard Cadets Hornline!

Brass players who wish to audition for the Vanguard Cadets are required to download the 2018 Brass Audition Packet (links below) for their respective section. These packets are $10 and are available for purchase through our online store. Players auditioning for Vanguard Cadets only are NOT required to prepare the Audition Excerpts, and may prepare any etude, solo, or exercise of their choosing.

When coming to camp, we prefer that you bring your own marching horn if possible. We play on Yamaha Bb horns, and one will be provided for use in the summer if you are offered a contract. You are welcome to bring a concert horn if you feel more comfortable auditioning on that instrument.

If you have questions about any of the exercises, methods or techniques as well as any operational, attendance or logistics questions please email
