PATRIOTS DRUMLINE 2013

RETURNING DRUMLINE MEMBER PLAYING THE SAME PART FOR 2013
Since most returning members choose to play the same parts, 2012 veterans can retain their parts without an audition. Simply sign in on the sheet posted in the band area under your instrument from last season. If you have been in Patriots Drumline before, but did not play last season, you will need to audition again. If you don’t sign up, we will assume you will not be playing that part and will make that part available to someone else.
