CALLBACKS & REHEARSAL CAMPS:

If you receive a callback for the 2020 season, you will attend a second-round January audition in San Jose, CA. Then, if you are offered membership, brass and percussion members will be required to attend 3 rehearsal camps which are held one weekend each month from March-May. Housing, shuttles to/from the airport, and food are all provided, and attendance at all rehearsal camps is mandatory unless you have a previously approved school conflict.

Beginning in February, all brass and percussion members who live within 100 miles of Santa Clara are expected to attend weekly Sunday rehearsals. On camp weekends, Sunday rehearsals are included as part of the Camp. Those performing with a winter percussion ensemble should let the staff know at the time they audition for the Vanguard Cadets.
