VOCALIST AUDITIONS:

NOTE:
All vocalists who audition will make it into our COS choir! If you are wanting to lead from a microphone in a band, you can re-audition after 3 months of being in our choir. This is to see your commitment as a team player. At the end of those three months, you will have the option to audition for a band, if that is something you would like to do! Each vocalist, in a band or not, is apart of our COS choir. The end goal of all of this is not to be on a microphone, but to be apart of this community of worshippers.

Female Vocals: 
"Hosanna" (live) - Hillsong Worship and "Reckless Love" (live) - Passion, Melodie Malone 

We will be listening to your tone, pitch and vocal style.
