Join a Performance Team - Auditions Now Open!
After two years working on our Modern Oldies Show and performing at Disney World, we are ready to start a brand new show and we want you to be a part of it!
The Music Depot Performance Team Program will be taking auditions from our students for our brand new show.... Youth Gone Wild, A Tribute to 80's Hair Bands!
What are Performance Teams at The Music Depot?
The Performance Team Program at The Music Depot is a free program available to our dedicated music students interested in taking their talents out of the classroom and into the community. The program is a one year commitment and teaches our students how to become entertainers at various festivals and events throughout the year. **Please note that previous stage experience through our Concert Class program is mandatory before auditioning for the Performance Team. Students must also be enrolled in private lessons with all accounts in good standing**
Our past Performance Team show, Modern Oldies, performed on many stages including Disney World in August 2019. This program proves to take our students to the next level, offering many exciting opportunities for performances including a group trip at the end of the program.
Students are put onto individual teams (bands) and rehearse once a week for an hour in our Port Colborne studio. Rehearsals will begin in October where students will create their show and work on their stage performance. Once the show is created, a list of upcoming performances will be sent out.
Exciting opportunities like recording, making music videos, photo shoots and radio performances are all a part of the program at The Music Depot, offering a real life band experience. The program ends with a large trip to perform on a huge stage in August and fundraising for these trips is also a part of the program.
Are you ready for a Performance Team?
This program is not for all students! It is a program that demands full dedication and time. Students must bring their very best to all rehearsals and performances and commit to various shows and extra practices on weekends.
To get ready for joining a performance team, we suggest students start by hitting the stage at our monthly Open Jam nights. This will get students used to performing in front of a crowd and working with others on stage.
The next step is to join a concert class at The Music Depot. It is mandatory for students to join a concert class before auditioning for Performance Team as it is where students really learn how to work within band setting and learn to understand band etiquette.
How to Audition for
Youth Gone Wild...a Tribute to 80's Hair Bands
Video auditions are now being accepted until September 27th, 2019.
Students must submit a video via email performing a 80's hair band song featuring them vocally or on their instrument. Be careful when choosing the audition piece to make sure that it showcases the students talent and that it fits the theme appropriately.
Each student must send in their own audition video using karaoke tracks, backing tracks or with accompaniment. If videos are too large to email, they may also be submitted via disc or USB.
Along with your audition video, please include a brief paragraph as to why the student wants to be on a performance team and indicate which band rehearsal times they are available for. We cannot guarantee that the student will get into a specific rehearsal time, so please indicate ALL times available.
