DRUM MAJOR FINALS:
Date: Wednesday, April 11th, 2018
Time: 3:15 – 4:30pm
We are looking for a Drum Major who will lead by example and exemplify the positive attitude, work ethic, and spirit of The PRIDE. A Drum Major is a musician, teacher, administrator, communicator, leader, performer, and friend. Drum majors auditions will culminate in candidates conducting The PRIDE in the final round.
Candidates may choose to conduct one the following traditional pieces: SHS Fight Song, Alma Mater or Amazing Grace, as well as one selection from the 2017 show, “Rockstar.” The PRIDE will then vote on the finalists and the outcome of the vote will play a role in the Staff’s decision of the final result.
Good Luck & Go PRIDE GO!!
Mr. Weaver & Mrs. Hammock
