The Kilties are preparing for the summer schedule of parades and Mini-Corps presentation at Gilmore Middle School in Racine, Wisconsin.  Potential members are invited to attend along with veterans and alumni.  

Membership is open to those from 16 years old and upward with positions open in brass, color guard and percussion (battery and front ensemble).  The weekend will include section rehearsal sessions learning new parade music and the 2017 Min-Coprs production.   Apply online here to receive further information. The Kilties are a world renowned all-age coed organization founded in 1934 and focused on education and mentor-ship.

Since The Kilties founding by Mr. Raymond Vance in 1934, it has been the goal of the organization to offer the finest in design, instruction and teaching; in addition to being a positive and uplifting experience for the membership. 2017 is no different as The Kilties have assembled a stable of highly experienced and qualified arrangers, composers, designers and educators with the sole purpose of offering a competitive, fan-friendly and member-friendly production for the 2017 performance season.
