The Academy Alumni Association 2016 November (RE)cap

Hey Alumni!

After a season of making history with the 2016 Drum Corps(e), the Academy Alumni Association is excited to see all the new and exciting things awaiting our organization this year!

2017 Auditions

The Academy has a record number of applicants for the 2017 season, and it’s growing each day!  We are excited to see the eager and talented prospective members next month, but we need your help to make sure the audition process goes smoothly.  This year, the audition camps are broken down into two weekends:

  • December 2-4: Guard and Percussion Auditions
  • December 9-11: Brass and Drum Major Auditions

Both audition weekends will be held at Casa Grande High School.  If you are interested and able to volunteer at either audition camp, please contact our new volunteer coordinator, Melissa Ziervogel, at

Alumni Store

Don’t forget to grab your Academy Alumni swag online at Many items are now available at a discounted price!

The Alumni Board is very excited for another great season, and we would love for you to join us!  Our next board meeting will take place on Sunday, January 8th.  Be sure to keep an eye on our Alumni Facebook page for the time and location of this meeting.

I’m looking forward to another great season!
