AUDITION INFO:

This awesome travel and performance opportunity is one that encompasses precisely what RVI percussion ensemble represents and promises to its members – Professional Performance, World Class Music Education, and Unforgettable Experiences.  With that in mind, a major portion of our ability to partner as performers with Gallant Entertainment, Inc., or “Make Music New York” hinges on our ability to behave as if we did this for a living.  That means arriving to every gig knowing every note on whatever instrument a performer has been chosen for.  A major portion of our audition process therefore will not only be based on attitude or skill, but memorization and professionalism as well.

Auditionees are encouraged to try out for Snare Drum, Tenors, Bass Drum or Cymbals.  Anyone interested in auditioning should contact Matt Hoffman via RVIperc@gmail.com, or by using the form on our contact page.  Please prepare and memorize the music from A through B in the piece below.
