Color Guard

The CMU Color Guard performs with The Sound of Central Marching Eagle Band at every home football game and during the annual CMU Band Day. Membership to the Color Guard is by audition.

Audition Information

Formal group auditions are held in the Spring semester. Students may audition by appointment with Caryn Jackson / Skip Vandelicht at any point of the year, or also by video submission. Dress in rehearsal blacks, prepare a performance, and be ready to learn warm-ups and a performance piece. Your prepared performance needs to last 1min 30sec to appropriate music of your choice. Integrate body movement with your equipment work to take up both time and space. Flag is required, rifle/sabre optional.

Video submissions are now being reviewed for the Fall 2021 season. Send yours to
