Boost1I’m excited to announce I’ll be taking my Unto Us Christmas concert on tour again this December and I want you to be on stage with us!  If you live in or near the cities in our expanding list below*, and either play an orchestral instrument or love to sing choral music, WE WANT YOU to be a part of the 2015 Unto Us Tour!  The goal is to fill these stages with people from all over your community, from different backgrounds, cultures and denominations, to celebrate the birth of our One Savior, Jesus Christ together!!!

AUDITIONING

If you are interested in participating, please submit a basic video (no more than 60 seconds in length) playing your instrument (or singing) to [email protected] no later than Sept 30, 2015.  Auditions close when we run out of room on stage, even if you sit first chair in your local orchestra, so act quickly!  Please include your Name, Email address, Age (if under 18), instrument played/part sung and your concert City/Date.

REHEARSALS

Each concert has a Local Director who will be conducting six rehearsals beginning in September, dates will vary from city to city.  You would be placed on a mailing list to receive information about those rehearsals and your music.  You will need to attend at least four of the six rehearsals.  But we’d love for you to make them all!  (I plan on attending all of my rehearsals!)

DAY OF CONCERT

On the afternoon of the concert, we’ll all rehearse together (me, the band, choir and orchestra) and perform before your loved ones and community that evening!  (One complimentary ticket will be provided for your use.)

SUMMARY

•Submit 60 second audition video and information to [email protected] by Sept 30, 2015 (ASAP recommended!)

•Receive sheet music and audio files digitally (No piracy please) 

•Attend no less than 4 rehearsals between Sept – Nov 2015
