So...How much does it cost?

When you sign a Performing Member Contract with The Cavaliers, you agree to the financial obligations and payment schedule associated with that membership.

Bottom line – Drum corps is expensive and there is no silver bullet to pay your way. The Cavaliers will give our members multiple fundraising opportunities, but the organization expects performers to fulfill ALL financial obligations in a timely manner. 

Don't wait until the last minute to start building your fundraising plan – You can do this!





Prospective and Returning Members must pay a one-time Audition Event Fee ($175-200) to audition for The Cavaliers. We strongly recommend attending just one (1) Audition Experience event.

Payment the Audition Event Fee is required to advance to the Call-Back stage. Both fees are non-refundable.

The Cavaliers charge $150 for the Call-Back Camp and for each subsequent rehearsal camp attended after the Audition Experience events. If you are awarded a Performing Member Contract at any time, all remaining camp fees are included in your membership dues.
