 Re: Upcoming Marine Band Audition

William,

Yes, there is an age requirement. One thing to keep in mind though is the band chooses players on musical ability alone. The audition is held behind a screen like most orchestral auditions. But in addition to winning the audition, one must also be qualified to enlist in the Marine Corps. There are age, physical, and health requirements that everyone entering the Marine Corps must meet.

However, another thing to keep in mind is the fact that all members of "The President's Own" Marine Band are non combatants. So the band is sometimes able waive some requirements that might normally disqualify someone for military service. These waivers are granted on a case by case basis, and I would direct specific questions to our operations office.

You can find more specific information as well as our operations contact email here:
