The audition process will begin on April 2, 2016 with a clinic day, to help students prepare for the audition on April 23, 2016.  Both events will run from 9 - 5 in the music building.  Auditions are a full day experience at NIU.  Please plan on attending for the entire day.  Please also print off and bring with the packet of drumline exercises, as these will be part of the audition process.

There will be an additional camp the weekend of July 16 and 17, 2016.

Please contact the band office if you have any questions.
