The audition process can be confusing to those experiencing it for the first time. The first few audition camps are a mutual meeting between the two parties. We assess the attitude, interest, and talent of the individual, and the individual has a chance to feel out their peers and staff and see how they fit in the ensemble. If offered a contract, your child/student will receive a packet of information. Everything about CTP is outlined in this packet. Until then, encourage them to keep showing up and giving their best! Before auditions we encourage you to read all info on the website, and check out our Instagram and facebook pages as well.
We understand that sometimes communication can be lost or altered. Although at CTP one of our primary goals is to build that life skill within the students, sometimes a direct flow of information is needed. If you have questions, you can reach out to the director through various platforms, including our "contact us" portion of the website.
What is WGI?
Charles Towne Percussion is an indoor performing arts ensemble that learns and rehearses a competitive show each year. Typically we compete in two circuits, CWEA, and WGI. Carolina Winter Ensemble Association(CWEA) is our local circuit focused on shows within a 3-4 hour driving venue range. Winter Guard International(WGI) is our national circuit, where we compete with other ensembles from all over the country, ending in Dayton, Ohio in the spring, which determines our national ranking. In the 2021-2022 season we ended 9th in the nation in our class. More information can be obtained on both of these circuits by viewing their websites.
