Color Guard

The CMU Color Guard performs with The Sound of Central Marching Eagle Band at every home football game and during the annual CMU Band Day. Membership to the Color Guard is by audition.

Audition Information

Auditions will be held in the band room in Classic Hall on April 14th, 2018 from 8 AM to 12 PM. Come in rehearsal blacks, prepare a performance, and be ready to learn warm-ups and a performance piece. Your prepared performance needs to last 1min 30sec to appropriate music of your choice. Integrate body movement with your equipment work to take up both time and space. Flag is required, rifle/sabre optional. CMU does have some equipment available if you do not have your own. Register by email to Caryn Jackson.
