Color Guard

Western Michigan University color guard auditions are held each year in August. Attendance at the audition date is mandatory. This year's auditions are on Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.

  • Registration is required for the pre-audition workshop and auditions.
  • Please note all auditions will occur at the Dalton Music Building at WMU. There is no cost to audition.

Pre-audition workshop

To prepare for the auditions, we host a pre-audition workshop in July. This year the workshop is Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Attendance at the workshop is not required but highly encouraged as students will get to meet our staff, learn our techniques, and discuss auditions. Registration is required.


For the auditions no prepared routines are necessary. We will teach all students a new routine and you will be evaluated on your skill level, coordination, and potential you demonstrate. The Bronco Marching Band will provide all equipment. Your contribution will be hard work and a positive attitude.
