    I was wondering what bands there were at the academy, so I went to their website and looked. However, the problem comes when I notice that in all of the ensembles, there are absolutely no euphoniums/baritones (the instrument I play). Does the academy not have people play it or does there just so happen to not be any of that instrument currently? Really worrying me, as I was thinking when I would apply next year I could really show off my achievements with my instrument. I'm really hoping there just so happened to not be any, since it isn't a commonly chosen instrument.

    Danika...the Drum and Bugle Corp, which is the cadet marching band, does have the baritone. My DS was a baritone player last year, his C4C year. Do not bring your instrument to basic, you will be provided one after tryouts in August. Drum and Bugle kept him very busy but he really enjoyed it. Good luck to you!

    Thank you! I looked at all the members of the different bands listed on the site and none of them played it. Maybe it was dated or something? Who knows. I was really worried there for a bit, I love playing.

    If I remember correctly, there was someone walking up and down the line on I-day asking for appointees to sign up to try out for Drum and Bugle Corps.
