Thank you for your interest in auditioning for ORU Worship!

Video auditions are DUE WEDNESDAY, March 8 by midnight.

SINGERS: Please record one continuous video of you singing through the requested song (below). After recording the full song, record (on the same video) you singing the chorus through on melody, then sing chorus on harmony parts. Then do the same with the bridge. LADIES, please sing "Prepare the Way" and an additional song of your choice. MEN, please sing "We Praise You" and an additional song of your choice. You may sing in whatever key is comfortable for you. Do not do any audio editing.

To clarify, sing the whole song through, repeat chorus on melody, chorus on harmony, bridge on melody, and finally bridge on harmony.

BAND: Please record one continuous video of you playing "This is Freedom (Ain’t No Rock)" and "No One" You may submit another to showcase your abilities if desired in addition to the above.

DRUMMERS: Once you complete the songs for band, also add in the video a time where you play for 60 seconds showcasing your dynamics, groove, and "chops."

If you need to use Lowers to record your video, please email worship@oru.edu to schedule a time.
