So, you want to join our crazy band, huh? AWESOME!! In order to join OMTAAMB, you must submit an application. Basic qualifications are as follows:
- Be over 18 years of age
- Be able to play an instrument and to march (preferably at the same time), or for auxiliary units, be able to dance, twirl or swing a flag in time while marching
Deadlines & Audition Process
The deadline for new member applications is February 28th, 2017. Fill out the form below and read the Rules of Conduct. You don't pay any money yet, you'll pay at the audition.
Auditions for instrumentalists will be held on March 1st, 2017 at Ron Russell Middle School (3955 SE 112th, Portland, OR 97266). For auxiliary units, the unit captain will be contacting you regarding auditions.
Now don't get freaked out about auditions - I know I always do. It's actually pretty simple. In the past we had people join the band who couldn't play but wanted to march in the parade so they just held an instrument. Now we make you play a scale and show you can read music (the music will be provided ahead of time so you can practice it).
For any Recruiting questions, please contact our Recruiting person, Nicole Hagen.
Can't wait to have you join us!
