Thank you for your interest in attending a Fall Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble BKXperience event!
The Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble (WGI) is hosting 4 pre-season events this fall, culminating in our audition clinic. The BKPE BKXperience Open Clinic will focus on technique and is open to any drummer looking to improve their skills, whether or not they’re planning on auditioning for the ensemble. The Pre-Audition clinic will focus on the audition materials for the upcoming season, but is still open for anyone. The Audition Clinic is primarily for those drummers looking for a spot with the Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble.
There is NO Audition Fee for BKPE in 2019. All participants will pay the ONE-TIME BKPE Admin Fee (covers: administrative and database management of all participant records, BKXperience-Audition packet support, etc.).
