MMB Drum Major audition season

Submitted by glewe on April 5th, 2011 at 11:42 PM

MMB Drum Major auditions are slated to begin tomorrow, April 6th. For those who don't know, the process is as such:

All DM candidates do a pre-audition for the MMB staff. Staff then picks the best candidates based on their pre-audition, and to follow that audition, the final candidates will audition again for the whole marching band on the day of the spring meeting (the last day of classes, April 19th), who will then elect the best candidate to the position. Tomorrow is the pre-audition at Elbel field. This year, there are 7 candidates. One had to drop out because of injury - otherwise there would be 8.

but in terms of pure karma goodness, nothing beat hearing "Ramon Johnson from Pas-a-dena California" during that 97 season. Went to a bando party (squatters rights-- one of my roomates was a bando so I got dragged along-- after the Ohio State game that year and I have never seen a happier individual than Ramon that night.

There's an excellent shot of Hines on the field that is making its way into promotional materials used by the admissions office.  Including a poster.  I saw a mockup and blurted "I NEED THAT FOR MY OFFICE" a sentiment which was repeated by everyone at the meeting.  Anxiously awaiting that one to be printed.
