Welcome to the Drumline section of the website. The UW Drumline is comprised of four sections; Snares, Tenors (quints), Bass Drums and Cymbals. Depending on the return rate from the previous year and how many people audition for the line we field between seven and ten snares, five or six tenors, six bass drums and between seven and ten cymbals. The Husky Marching Band does not field a pit. If you are interested in mallet or concert percussion, please consider looking into the other fine ensembles offered at the UW (www.music.washington.edu/ensembles/).
The band performs at many local and regional public, corporate and private events. In addition to these performances the drumline also holds several clinics throughout the year both on and off campus. Our biggest clinic of the year, The Day of Marching Percussion, is held every year on a Saturday in August and, for the drumline, serves as a wrap-up to our week long rehearsal camp. Information regarding this clinic can be found on our workshops page.
If you would like to join the Husky Drumline, please check out the Drumline Auditions Page.
The Husky Drumline is proud and privileged to play on the very finest instruments. We are extremely fortunate to have forged wonderful relationships with the following corporations: Pearl Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Vic Firth Sticks and Mallets, and Remo Drumheads.
