Please read carefully & thoroughly.

How many music teams are there in an academic year?

  • We have four teams.
  • Teams lead every other week Monday or Friday chapel.

How many musicians are on each team?

Chapels may include piano, acoustic & electric guitars, bass, drums, percussion, organ, keyboard, auxiliary instruments (e.g. flute, violin, viola, cello, mandolin, banjo, etc.), and singers on melody and harmony (tenor, alto, and sometimes bass).

What musicians are you currently looking for?

We are eager to learn about new musicians in all the different instruments and voice parts. Though space at times is limited, students graduate, travel abroad for interim or a semester, or need to leave the team for various reasons. At these times we can call on musicians that have auditioned, but have not yet been invited to participate.

When do the teams rehearse?

  • All music for Monday or Friday is rehearsed on Tuesday or Wednesday evening (8:00–10:00 p.m.)
  • Teams rehearse every other week.
  • Additional rehearsal for Monday and Friday chapel takes place at 7:00 a.m. the day of chapel
    (That’s right 7:00 a.m.! This is to avoid class conflicts.)
  • All rehearsal times must be met in order to participate.

What is the time commitment?

Teams spend 3–4 hours on the assigned week.

What equipment does the chapel provide?

The chapel has an acoustic and an electronic drum set, djembe, cajon, and congas, a bass and electric guitar amplifier, a bass, electric and acoustic guitars, and a keyboard. Team members are permitted to practice with these instruments and use them in worship.

When is the next audition date?

Auditions will be held for 2nd semester teams both online and in-person. Audition materials will be received through Thursday, September 30. In-person auditions will be held Wednesday, September 29 and Thursday, September 30 from 6:30-8:30pm. Please contact Pastor Paul Ryan if you have any questions.

How will I find out how my audition went?
