Falcon Marching Band Drumline
This is the official website for the Bowling Green State University Falcon Drumline. On this page you will find information concerning audition times and materials, clinics, performances and staff bios.
The BGSU Drumline has a rich history of tradition within the Falcon Marching Band and strives to lead young percussionists in achieving their goals in marching percussion and performance. The group performs at all home football games as well as other events on campus throughout the fall.
Auditions for 2023 are complete. If you have questions please contact Dr. Cook.
Auditions are on the horizon! Auditions for the 2024 season will be the weekend of May 6-7 2023. These will be in person auditions that will take place at BGSU. If you plan to audition for the Drumline, you need to fill out the form at the top. Filling out the form will put you on the list to receive the audition materials and information as it’s released.
Our auditions have two components, individual auditions and group auditions. We will use the same music for both portions. The music will consist of the drumline warmups for 2023, and a specially written piece we will only play during the audition process. After you’ve filled out the form, look for music to come in March!
The Falcon Marching Band rehearses Monday-Friday from 4-5:45. The drumline will have a sectional during that time, with occasional rehearsals outside of normal band rehearsal. We perform at all home football games (typically 6), and some other athletic events in the fall, including sports like soccer and volleyball. The band will typically travel to one away game a season, as well as to a bowl game if the football team is eligible. The marching band also has several additional performances every semester which can range from performing at band shows or competitions, professional sporting events, parades, and more.
