Come be a part of "...of essence" Winterguard 2010!

Post by guardthepiccolo » Thu Aug 27, 2009 12:47 am

Hey guys!

Interested in spinning this winter in the Bay Area? Come spin with 2009 CCGC Independent "A" Class Champion "...of essence" Winterguard! We will be marking our 2nd year in existence with our debut in the WGI circuit this year, competing at regionals throughout the state!

"...of essence" Winterguard is based in Sunnyvale, CA. Founded in December 2008, 2 weeks before CCGC evaluations, "...of essence" was compromised primarily of SJSU members who wanted a place to spin during the off season. We practiced in parks/parking lots, and threw together half of a show with 17 members in about 2 weeks, and ended up enjoying an undefeated season in the IA class. While practicing outside was an experience we'll never forget, we're incredibly happy to announce that we will be starting much earlier this year, and have facilities to rehearse in as well!
This summer, "...of essence" hosted a Summer Program, which was highly successful and ended with our 1st annual concert in early August. This season is looking to be very promising, and we'd like to open our membership to those looking for a place to spin this winter!

That being said, I'd like to invite you to our AUDITIONS coming up!

Who:"...of essence" winterguard
What: AUDITIONS
When:FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 7:30-10:30PM
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 12PM-6PM
(no Saturday audition due to SJSU performance)
Where:FREMONT HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIA
1279 Sunnyvale-Saratoga Rd.
Sunnyvale, CA 94087


Please wear all black, form-fitting attire. If you are interested in audition for weapon line, please bring your own equipment if you have it, some weapons may be provided. Flags will be provided for auditions, though you will need to purchase your own for rehearsals. Remember water and a snack as well as a lunch for Sunday's Audition.

While we will not necessarily be auditioning based on pure talent, a positive, hard-working attitude is a must!

Hope to see you there!

Auditions begin tonight @ 7:30pm in the cafeteria! Hope you can make it out :yeah: :yeah:

PARKING-There will be a Homestead HS football game tonight on campus(they don't have lights at their school), and it's supposed to be pretty crowded/crazy, so I'd advise parking in the back lot, which can be accessed via FREMONT AVE. If you follow the border of the school on Fremont, turn right into the parking lot at the back of the school. It's pretty easy to miss, so keep your eyes open. From there, walk straight through the campus until you hit the ampitheatre, and make a right. You'll see the cafeteria on the far right edge of campus.
