Color Guard

The Huskie Band Color Guard is a select group of approximately 24 members who visually interpret the Huskie Marching Band music. We love to help tell the story of the songs on the field!

Audition Information

Color Guard individual auditions are part of a day-long audition process. A minimum of one year experience on flag in marching band, winter guard or Drum Corps International is required.

Please wear black dance or yoga pants, a form-fitting black shirt, athletic tennis shoes and socks (no sandals). Please make sure your hair is pulled back off your face and bring a water bottle. It is not necessary to bring your own flag - we will provide you with one. Please bring your insurance cards and show up early to fill out some paperwork.

If you plan on attending auditions you must contact Lori Valenzuela at lorivalenz@gmail.com at least a week before the audition. You may also contact Lori with any questions.
