A Community-Wide Open Call for New Drummers for the 2022-2023 Performance Season

Experienced musicians are preferred but anyone willing to become a member of San Antonio’s renowned drum ensemble is very welcome to these sessions.   

URBAN-15 is preparing for an exciting season of stage, festival, and special event productions in 2022-23. Performances offer a range of percussion styles from Afro-Latin, Brazilian, Caribbean and African traditions and instruments. OPEN CALL sessions are scheduled for 2 p.m. on August 14th.  Drummers are asked to bring their own pair of drumsticks and parade mallets while instruments will be provided. 

Formed in 1987, Carnaval de San Anto is URBAN-15’s original, award-winning, multi-generational community drum and dance ensemble. CDSA was the first group to bring the carnaval rhythms of samba, reggae, rumba, maracatu, and Afro-Brazilian rhythms to San Antonio parades and festivals. URBAN-15’s Carnaval de San Anto has toured all over Texas and Mexico, performed at three presidential inaugurations, and become a regular at some of San Antonio’s most iconic and memorable events, such as Luminaria, the Fiesta Flambeau Parade, the King William Fair, and Jazz’SAlive. URBAN-15’s Carnaval de San Anto has changed how this city celebrates and helped shape the culture of San Antonio.
