All three audition camps for the 2015 season were a success, and the Gateway staff is thrilled to move forward and start the creative process. Our "call-back" camp last weekend allowed the staff to see and hear very strong talent. These musicians challenged themselves to find out if they have what it takes to be a member of Gateway.
We also raffled off a Pearl snare drum this weekend. Congratulations to Max Gagnon, a Loyola University (Chicago) student, on being the lucky winner! Not only did he win a drum this weekend, he has also been offered a Front Ensemble position with Gateway 2015. Welcome to the group, Max!
Thank you to all the students who auditioned, we truly hope everyone involved learned valuable information, became better musicians, and stronger leaders. We would also like to thank the O'Fallon Township High School campuses (O'Fallon, IL) and Mt. Juliet High School (Nashville, TN) for your facilities during our audition process.
