On Saturday, June 4th, we held audition for the 2016-2017 K-State Drumline. With nearly 75 people audition for the line this year, there is no doubt we had one of the most talent audition classes this drumline has seen. Congrats to those who have been chosen to be on the 2016-2017 K-State Drumline!
