Will there be auditions at Open House? There will not be auditions at Open House. Basically, YOU will be auditioning Fusion. We want you to be sure that Fusion is a fit for you, but, if you’re not feeling it at open house, come back to the next rehearsal. Sometimes it takes more than one read, just as in an audition. We never will discount you on a first

Will there be housing available? We will confirm that as we get closer, but at this moment, yes, there will be housing available. Location will be confirmed in the final schedule you will receive the week before open house.
Why Should I march Fusion Core? Fusion Core founders started this drum core to provide members with not only a drum corps experience, but to provide a drum corps experience within a family atmosphere. Saying “we’re like a family” can be very cliché, but Fusion Core was literally started by a group of people who were either life long friends and/or family members. During our 15 years, we’ve had several members marry their “forever friend” they met in drum core!
Life can be tough. When our members walk through our doors, we want them to feel as if they are walking into their “safe space”. A place where they can shut off the noises coming from the real world and settle in to a place where they can spend time doing what they love with people who will become like family!
