The Process

1
Register and pay

Use this registration form to register in the FENIXperience.

Registration Fees:

$150 for the entire FENIXperience -includes online resources, 1 day clinic/auditions and the FULL WEEKEND FENIXperience events.

This covers all materials, online lessons, video submissions and staff interactions as well as your first In-Person Camp for Virtual participants including housing, meals and instruction.  Once you have filled out the registration form you will be all set to begin your journey.

2
Enroll In Our Online Audition Platform

Once you register and pay, you will automatically receive a confirmation email that will instruct you to enroll in both our Brass and Visual audition platforms.

Once enrolled you will be walked through the process by our instructors in the form of an online video course. These videos will teach you the exercises you will need to perform in your audition.

3
Submit Your Audition Videos

Our video courses are available to in person Auditioning students as well and we strongly encourage you to complete the process.  You will get valuable feedback to make your in person audition experience more enjoyable.

Once you complete the video courses you can create and submit your videos for review. Make sure you follow all of the instructor’s instructions as closely as you can. Attention to detail is very important!!

Make sure you submit to both the Brass and Visual online audition platforms. 

4
Attend An In Person Audition Camp

The goal is to get everyone to one of our full weekend FENIXperience Camps so we suggest that you sign up for one of those events. If you attend a 1 day clinic/audition or choose the online audition submittal option, you can be awarded a Provisional Contract and will be required to attend one of the Full FENIXperience weekend camps before a full contract will be offered.

The 1 Day and Online options are designed for students to “test the water” and see if Full Membership is right for them. A full weekend gives our staff the opportunity to see how students perform in a normal drum corps setting.

Your registration fee for the FULL FENIXperience covers the total cost of your audition process.

A full audition weekend includes all housing, meals and instruction and will be action packed with clinicians, introductions to our 2023 production and much more.

Make sure to bring your instrument, as we will not have enough to go around during audition events.
