Introducing the 2017-18 Edition of Twirling Thunder!


Twirling Thunder auditions were held on Saturday April 8th, on the campus of Prairie View A&M. Students from across the state came to showcase their skills as they were judged for a coveted spot on the Twirling Thunder team. Judges for the audition included two Color Guard experts from the Houston area, Krystal Shepherd Greene and Brittany Shepherd, along with Assistant Director of Bands, Prof. Brandon Hopkins. Candidates were required to perform a one minute 30 second solo of their own flag choreography, as well as perform a routine they learned the day of the auditions for the judges.

Along with our returning veterans, we are happy to welcome all our talented individuals to the Marching Storm!
