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 July 10th and 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.
