FIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR CHROMIUM WINDS Membership

I. TALENT – The instructional staff will evaluate your abilities on your instrument/equipment, your movement ability, your development and progress over a period of time based on specific criteria as outlined in the audition material.

II. FEES AND PAYMENTS – You need to demonstrate willingness and ability to fulfill the financial commitment as described in the audition information packet. We expect payments to be made in a timely manner. Any difficulties in adhering to the payment schedule must be discussed with Chromium's management.

III. ATTENDANCE – You will be expected to attend all rehearsals and performances. When you attend an Audition Experience event, you should discuss with the staff any known events that conflict with rehearsal or performance dates. If you have a critical family or school conflict with a camp, notify Chromium's management as soon as you become aware of the issue. If we don’t hear from you, we consider the absence unexcused, which could negatively impact your membership status. You will need to clear your winter calendar of all conflicts.

IV. ATTITUDE – You will need to maintain a positive attitude in challenging circumstances. The hours are long and the work is hard. You will be asked to do things that you’ve never done and work harder than you probably ever have. Your ability to stay positive and focused will help you and those around you meet the challenges you’ll face.

V. HEALTH – You must be physically, mentally and emotionally able to withstand the rigorous requirements of practices, performances, and travel. A complete health history and sports physical are required. If you have ANY doubts about this program, please discuss your concerns with corps management and medical staff.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF – YOU CAN DO THIS!
