In the final round of the 2019 Skol Line Auditions, a group of extremely talented finalists battled it out Thursday evening, May 16th at the Mall of America for a coveted spot on this year’s roster.
Finalists each performed a unique solo as well as various group ensembles before a panel of judges and a packed audience in the Mall of America Rotunda to prove they have what it takes to drum for the Skol Line.
