There will be two optional Pride of Oklahoma Audition Orientation Clinics on Saturday July 20 and Saturday July 27, from 3:00-6:00p, immediately following Camp Crimson. Clinics are open to both Prospective and Returning Members, and reservations are required. Attending one or both of these clinics is the first step towards a successful audition in August. We will address techniques that are fundamental to both marching and playing, and explain this year's audition process. More detailed clinic and reservation information will be available online soon.
The Pride of Oklahoma Color Guard performs alongside the Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band, providing a visual interpretation of the music, at all home football games, select away football games, and other events throughout the fall semester. The group focuses on tall flag choreography and marching with the sole goal of entertaining the 85,000 fans that attend every home game. Auditions for the Pride of Oklahoma color guard are held in the beginning of August.
