We’re heading to Perth! (WA audition announcement)

D² is going West!

We are so excited to be setting up a brand new performance ensemble in Perth in collaboration with James Chong (bio below). James is an incredible musician and a wonderful human with a huge amount of experience in the world of Drumline as well as ensemble direction and professional performance – we could not ask for a better representative for D² in Western Australia. 

Auditions will be held on the 7th December, with a series of Audition Preparation sessions being run by James to help prospective members prepare for their audition.

Experienced drummers / percussionists with a desire to be challenged are encouraged to apply. Positions are available on: snare drum (traditional grip), quads, bass drum, and cymbals.
