Where INov8 is Going

Started in 2016, the winter percussion ensemble has had a meteoric rise in WGI. In 2017, with "The Ripples Must be Endless" INov8 earned its first finals appearance, finishing 9th in WGI Percussion Independent Open. 

In 2018, with Time Bomb, INov8 recently won the Open Class at the Dayton WGI Regional, and is building momentum to jump into WGI World Class within the next two years.

Audition F.A.Q

INov8 Audition Frequenty Asked Questions. 

We have prepared a list of answers to commonly asked questions, but if you still need more info, please shoot an email to info@inov8winterperc.org

How will auditions and callbacks work?

Auditions will begin on September 10th, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM. The staff will be assessing participants on their skills, strengths, and positive attitude during session offered in musicality and movement. You will be graded by the staff on a scale of 1 to 5 in various areas of skill, and averaged at the end of the camp. Based on the first audition, there may be individuals who are given a contract; individuals who are asked to come back and to improve on certain areas in order to receive a contract; and there will be individuals who need more practice, experience and time, and they will receive an email thanking them for auditioning and will be given any notes the staff feels might help that individual prepare for a future audition.  

What are the audition fees?

This season, there will be a total of 5 audition dates, beginning with the first one on September 10th. There is a registration fee of $75, which will cover you through the audition process. This is a one time fee, and is not inclusive in your member fees for the season.

What if I am unable to attend the SEPTEMBER 10th audition date?

In order to make the process as fair and as objective as possible, it is extremely important that all those serious about a spot attend the September 10th session.  If you know of a conflict, you may contact us at info@inov8winterperc.org to work it out.  You will be required to attend the second camp on September 24th.

Who may audition?

Anyone may audition that does not currently have an active indoor percussion program at their high school, or those not over the age of 22 as of 12:01 AM on April 1st 2018.  If you would like to attend the audition for experience only, please let the Registration Staff know so we can make a note.

Do I need to bring my own equipment?

Yes and no.

Everyone is required to bring their own sticks and mallets, and battery/auxiliary players should bring practice pads.  Snare and Quad attendees are asked to bring their own drums with stands and harnesses.  AS ALWAYS, bring your binders with audition music and pencils.

What should I wear?

Please dress comfortably, and be prepared to move.  Tennis shoes are a good idea, and black colored clothing is preferred.  Wearing something to stand out does not work in your favor.

How many members will you take?

It all depends on the turnout at auditions.  The goal this season is much higher than in the past. Here are the positions we are looking to fill: Snare Drum, Tenor Drums, Bass Drums (8 drums), Marching Cymbals, Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Bells, Auxiliary Percussion, Synthesizer, Drum Set, Guitars, and a Visual Ensemble.  We are flexible according to the outcome of the auditions.  Many times, we are able to find secondary positions for potential members who may not be suited for their primary instrument choice. We are not, however, prepared to take more than is helpful to our success as a group.
