Saying that we had our best turnout ever for auditions sounds cliché, but it’s completely representative of what happened the past few weeks. The level of talent but more importantly - preparation was quite incredible and inspiring.

United was able to host two very successful audition days in September and October. Over 100 potential members came from many different areas, and even countries to participate in the process. After the evaluation, United Percussion is proud to present it's 2018 cast.
