Acoustic Soloists, Acoustic Duos, and Piano Bar Entertainers will select their own music for the performance portion of the audition whereas musical material will be provided for instrumentalists and vocalists via email. Instrumentalists will also have an additional sight reading component.
You would need the following things for your live audition:
• Drummers: Please bring your own cymbals to your LIVE audition
• Guitarists/Bassists: Amps will be provided at the audition site
• Keyboardists: A professional keyboard and amp will be provided at the audition site
Applicants must submit a current resume, photo and a demo reel link. Preferred video links are YouTube, Vimeo or Dropbox and they should not exceed five minutes in length. If you meet the requirements we will invite you to take an online interview through Hirevue to learn more about yourself. Selected instrumentalists and vocalists will take an online interview which will test their sight reading skills. Should you make it to the next stage you will be invited for an online audition using Hirevue.
Here’s what you need for your online auditions:
- Your instrument and necessary accessories
- A computer or an IOS/Android compatible mobile device with the HireVue app
- A YouTube or another online video service account
- A separate camera or mobile device to ensure higher video quality and to provide a back-up recording in the event of internet failure (all except Piano Bar Entertainers)
- A computer with printer (instrumentalists only)
- While not required, it is suggested that instrumentalists and vocalists use an external speaker and/or microphone to aid in the recording process
The average response time between stages could be anywhere between 3 - 6 weeks.
