Watchmen 2020 November Audition Wrap up

November 18, 2019 –  With the marching band season coming to an end in Southern California, Watchmen Drum and Bugle Corps held their first audition for the 2020 season on November 17th at Bloomington High School.  You could feel the excitement in the air when auditioning candidates were handed an official Watchmen Audition T-shirt and the opening production music, which was later performed at the end of the day.  Parents and family members were given updated information about our tour, staff, and much, much more. This is the earliest audition start in Watchmen history and we are very pleased with the turnout.

 

In other exciting news, the Watchmen Board of Directors are very pleased and excited to welcome a true music education legend on the team.  Charles Gray, former esteemed director of bands at Riverside King High School will join the board as Vice President and will begin to focus his attention on something that he has well over 35 years of experience with: Community Development / Outreach.  Gray, outside of his legendary status as one of southern California’s most distinguished and accomplished band directors, prided himself on establishing positive community relations by involving his programs with local political, charitable, and note-worthy events. 

Additionally, he brings to Watchmen a vast network of contacts in the political and entertainment worlds, and will help to foster relationships that will benefit the organization and provide more performance opportunities. As the Watchmen organization continues to grow, having Gray’s vast experience will assist in leading us to an even brighter future.

 

Next Audition December 15th at Bloomington High School.
