auditions
September 16 & 17 ~ 7-10 p.m. ~ Wilson Blackbox
PURE is looking high and low for new members, so come try out! Attention all drummers, vocalists, guitarists, techies, graphic designers, or prospective publicity department members: we are waiting for you to audition! The PURE audition is pretty painless, but I'll walk you through it so you know what to expect.
PURE holds auditions over a course of two days. Each audition takes approximately fifteen minutes. You can sign up for a time slot at the link above. Please sign up for only one time slot, even if you are auditioning for more than one instrument. On the day of your audition, please show up five minutes early. You'll fill out a quick sheet about your interests and experience.
As for the audition, all you have to do is have a piece of your own prepared - something you feel shows off your skills and that you're comfortable doing. You can do as much of the piece as you'd like. See below for more details about vocalists and instrumentalists.
Be prepared to audition in front of the Board (i.e., the ten officers listed on the member profiles page). Don't freak out! You'll love us, and we can't wait to meet you!
If you're a vocalist, the first thing you'll do is some scales with the piano. Scales serve as a great warm-up for your voice. They will let us hear what the tone of your voice sounds like and how you will best fit in our rock ensemble. This will also help us determine how well you can hear and match simple half and whole steps.
The fun part's up next: your solo! Sing any song for us that you feel shows off your unique talents. Though we'd prefer that you let us hear a rock song, any song will do...as long as you sound amazing!
Before you leave, the members of the Board will ask you a few questions about your singing experience, musical tastes, and a few other things. And then, you're free to go! You'll hear from us very soon informing you whether or not you're a new member of PURE!
