Bengal Color Guard

Color Guard Auditions
Saturday, July 19, 2014 • 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Auditions for the Bengal Color Guard will be held the Saturday following the Marching Arts Academy camp. All incoming and current ISU Color Guard members are encouraged to attend the MAA camp as it will be great preparation for the Saturday audition. Color guard auditions are held in a clinic format where all work will be introduced at the audition. Guard members should bring their own practice equipment if possible and have worked on learning the Fight Song flag work by watching the video.

Final Placement Audition
Color guard placement will continue at Band Camp Orientation on Saturday, August 16, 2014. If you would like to be member of the Bengal Color Guard and have not contacted us yet, please click JOIN THE BAND at the the top of the page and fill out the online form.



Over $100,000 in scholarship money is available each year to music majors and non-music majors enrolled in ISU performing groups.
