Mad Brass – 2017 SoundSport Indy

Forward Performing Arts and the Madison Scouts are excited for their newest performing ensemble Mad Brass SoundSport. SoundSport is a league of Drum Corps International (DCI) that takes the excitement and challenge of the drum corps activity and places it into a smaller performance footprint, has fewer restrictions, and simplified adjudication.

The Mad Brass SoundSport team is looking for additional musicians (trumpet, trombone, mellophone, sax, synthesizer) to help fill out the group as they get prepared to perform in Indianapolis at the DCI World Championships in the SoundSport competition.

The Mad Brass performers need to commit to the following rehearsal schedule and travel to Indianapolis. Charter bus transportation will be provided from Madison, WI and the trip will include housing (with the Madison Scouts), all meals, and a ticket the DCI Semifinals competition in Lucas Oil Stadium. Mad Brass will perform on Saturday morning at the SoundSport & Drumline Battle Competition and then return to Madison Saturday evening.
