Prospective students unable to attend Explore Eastern or EU Undergrad Open House may submit a video audition. You will be notified within two weeks via email whether or not you are being considered for a team. Additional information will be requested for further consideration. All final decisions will be posted on CWT website.

Audition Guidelines

Vocal Auditions:

  • Choose a song that displays your vocal range.
  • Song should be from a Christian genre (contemporary, worship, hymn, gospel, etc.).
  • Your song can be sung to a music track; accompany yourself or have someone accompany you.
  • You will be evaluated on pitch, technique, timing, expression and communication.
  • Make the effort to submit a quality presentation. Make sure your video is well-lit and we can hear you!

Instrumental Auditions:

  • In order to make a proper evaluation of your abilities select a song that is published and well-known.
  • Choose a song that demonstrates your playing abilities. Songs that modulate in key, have changing rhythm patterns, and/or complex chord structures are strongly advised.
  • Some instruments necessitate the use of a track or band. A song can be played with a music track that does not include the instrument you are auditioning for, with a band, or by yourself.
  • Submit one video with two songs, or layer the tracks on one song, if you are auditioning for more than one instrument.

Filming Checklist:

  • Make the effort to submit a quality presentation. Make sure your video is well-lit and we can hear you!
  • The camera should be focused on you throughout the video.
  • Make sure you can be identified if your video has band members playing/singing with you.
  • Shoot your video wherever you feel most comfortable (school, church, coffeehouse, home, etc.).
