Prospective members will be able to audition for the 2021 Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps by registering for the BKXperience. After purchasing a BKX package, it is expected that prospective members will prepare for their audition by doing the following:
- Read through the Dot Book.
- Watch the recordings of our two section-specific masterclasses.
- Sign up for, and attend an included virtual individual session with one of our staff members.
- Watch the recording of our leadership and personal development session.
These materials include the information needed to prepare for a successful audition, and contain the definitions of the audition assignments.
Once prospective members have recorded their auditions, they will be able to submit them within their personal BKX portal. After submitting, our staff will carefully craft personalized feedback, and grant each individual one of three statuses. Individuals will either be offered a contract, a callback, or will not be offered a spot in the 2021 corps. All individuals will receive constructive and specific feedback, regardless of their status.
All prospective members who are offered a callback will be invited to further virtual camps, alongside contracted members. In order to fulfill a callback audition for reconsideration for a full spot in the corps, these individuals will be asked to record another audition of the same content, using the personalized feedback they received in their first audition.
We’ve planned three more educational experiences throughout this spring for prospective members who have been offered a Contract or Callback through their participation in BKX 2021.
By submitting your audition at least 5 days before the next camp event, you will give our educators the time to carefully consider your performance and provide you with individualized feedback. If you receive a contract or a callback, you will be invited to the next camp, where we will be working on this summer’s show material!
If you have already been a part of BKX 2021 and have completed your audition and received your feedback, we look forward to seeing you on March 20th!
