Since the early part of 2016, Crown Guard members and percussionists have been competing in indoor competitions throughout the country and the world. With most circuits having just finished, the performers return to Fort Mill this weekend, ready to prepare for an exciting 2016 Crown season.
Over 70 applicants and returning Crown Guard vets from across the country will take over Fort Mill High School Friday through Sunday. Performers will come from as far away as Canada and Japan to compete for coveted spots in the Crown Guard.
The audition weekend for the Crown Guard is very intense and competitive. On Friday night, the staff, led by Caption Supervisor, Michael Townsend, will take the members through dance and movement technique, with Saturday being devoted to learning all the equipment work they will need for the audition.
Sunday morning, auditionees will be paired into groups and perform the newly-learned choreography for the staff. Final guard members and alternates will be announced in the afternoon.
As the guard returns for auditions this weekend, Crown percussionists will join again with the brass to put together show music and begin to learn drill.
