Drum For The 2012 Olympic Ceremonies
Want to be a drummer for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in England? Here’s your chance! No previous experience is required so as long as you make it through the auditions, you’re golden.
Drumjam, a group of drum circle facilitators, are looking for 1,000 volunteer percussionists 18 years or older by March 1, 2012 who are able to meet the following commitments for auditions and rehearsals:
- Up to two auditions that will take place evenings and weekends in November and early December of this year.
- Up to two or three rehearsal sessions each week of four hours per session from March 2012, and a number of all day rehearsals in the three weeks leading up to each Ceremony.
- All of these rehearsals will take place in East London. While it is possible to get assistance with public transportation to and from rehearsals between certain zones within the Transport for London transportation network, you will be responsible for covering the cost of your own transportation outside.
