Auditions Process

City Church Band is accepting all auditions for volunteer musicians via video submissions. To know a little more about our band volunteers please read this. We are always excited to meet new musicians and we’re looking forward to seeing your videos!

We will review your videos and email you back within 2 weeks with the next steps in the process. If you play multiple instruments and want to audition with them all, we ask that you submit videos for each individually. This includes vocalists who also play instruments.


Preparing For Your Audition

We know some of these songs have a certain degree of difficulty to them. We are not expecting you to perform them perfectly. Please don't get discouraged if you can't get everything right. Doing your best will help us to discern your current skill level.
