We are looking for drummers who play regularly – either by ear or who read music. All age groups and genders are welcome. They will have to be available for at least two full days for training and rehearsals – possibly 12 & 13 April. Performances will be during the week of 16th April when the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) takes place. We are awaiting for the final programme of events for that week to finalise our performance dates.
We are looking for approximately 60 drummers. There are 52 Commonwealth countries and we will have 8 reserve drummers. We shall expect all 60 performers (including the 8 reserve drummers) to play at all events. We would like drummers to wear a traditional costume or bandanas denoting the colours of a Commonwealth country. There is still a lot of planning and thinking going on about how we will conduct this event. Rotary Clubs to note that we are looking for volunteers and there are no funds to reimburse for time off from work or travel.
If Rotary Clubs have drummers in mind – then please put together a list with their profiles and note down if they would be happy to represent any particular Commonwealth country. The list will be forwarded to the organisers who will shortlist and conduct the auditions and training for these events.
