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 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 more than one, use the additional link areas on the audition form.

If you would like to schedule a face to face (live) audition, please email us at music@citychurchtallahassee.com.


Preparing For Your Audition

Some of these songs have a certain degree of difficulty to them. Please don't get discouraged if you can't get everything right. Doing your best will help us to discern your current skill level. You will find a downloadable file below called “Audition Resources.” Inside, you will find a folder for your instrument. Please listen to the “DEMO” file to practice your part and use the “PERFORMANCE” file to record you playing/singing your part.

Electric Guitarists

  • You will find two folders (EG1 and EG2). EG1 is for lead guitarists. If you audition with EG1, you will not need to audition for EG2 as well. However, if EG1 is currently beyond your skill set, please audition with EG2 parts.

Vocalists

  • Male - You will sing 2 songs. For your first song, use the Vocals Audition (Male) folder. For your second song, sing a verse and chorus of a song you feel best suits your vocals a cappella (no accompaniment)

  • Female - You will sing 2 songs. For your first song, use the Vocals Audition (Female) folder. For your second song, sing a verse and chorus of a song you feel best suits your vocals a cappella (no accompaniment)

  • Note: If you are unable to sing it in the key provided, please choose your best key and sing it a cappella.

Other Instruments

  • If you play an instrument not listed above we still want to hear from you! From time to time we have need for different instrumentation. Please upload a video of you playing 2 songs of your choice on your instrument with the instructions below.

  • This includes but is not limited to: Cello, Violin, Trombone, Trumpet, Saxophone, Banjo and Mandolin
