The 40th Anniversary Season for Spirit of Atlanta begins soon. Join our family with 40 years of history and tradition.

Spirit of Atlanta Director Chris Moore has announced the release of the official 2016 Audition Packets, along with a new simple and easy way to get the materials and everything needed to prepare for auditions with the 2016 corps.  The corps has recently announced changes to all of the Design and Education/Instruction teams, including all new Caption Supervisors for the upcoming season.  This meant that all previously released audition packets needed to be replaced with updated materials.

Moore says “Though we understood how anxious everyone is who is planning to audition, it was important to our staff to get the best quality material available, and to make the process as easy as possible to register and obtain the packets.”  He added, “we definitely hope everyone understands why this slight delay was necessary.  This is Spirit’s 40th Anniversary and we intend to make it a very special year for the corps.  Auditioning for Spirit of Atlanta means you will be interacting with very talented educators and performers that give you the finest educational experience available.  It is our goal that you will leave auditions with a set of enriched performance skill and life lessons.”

Now, anyone planning to buy a 2016 Audition Packet will find them available for online purchase in the Spirit Audition store.  Follow the links under the “Audition For Spirit” menu tab on our website, spiritdrumcorps.org.   You simply select the packet you wish to obtain, complete the online payment, and the you will automatically receive an e-mail with download instructions to obtain the packet in the form of a PDF file.

For those who have already purchased an Audition Packet, which are now obsolete, there will not be a charge to receive the new ones.  Those applicants can expect to receive an e-mail at the address they initially purchased from. Replacement packets are scheduled to be mailed out no later than the 9pm Monday October 12, 2015.  Anyone who purchased an Audition Packet and has not received a replacement by November 14 should contact Spirit of Atlanta at membership@spiritdrumcorps.org

In addition to Audition Packets, the Spirit Audition store now has an easy way to register and pay for the upcoming Audition Camps in November and December.  Please note that the initial camp fee prices are discounted prices that will be available only until November 13.  Beginning  November 14, all registrations prices will increase slightly. Purchase your registration right away and save before the deadline!

Spirit of Atlanta has also upgraded our Audition Information section of our website.  Now, it’s much easier to find the information your need to prepare for your audition by clicking on the tab specific to your section.  A new Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section has been added with a large amount of information that should answer most any questions about the audition and membership process of this World-Class DCI drum and bugle corps.

We’re excited that so many people have expressed interest in joining the baby blue family.  We look forward to our first incredible Audition Camp November 27-29 at South Forsyth HS in Cumming, GA.
