Q: What is "Growing Up Gospel: Music Revue"?

Q: What do I need to audition?
A: Please bring 16 bars of music (roughly one verse and one chorus) from the gospel songbook. An accompanist will be provided or you may sing a cappella. Should you bring a CD or iPod, please use a track without pre-recorded vocals. You must be at least 13yrs to audition. Any ethnicity is welcome.

Q: Why "give-what-you-can"?

This allows patrons to purchase ANY seat in the house for ANY amount they choose. Suggested donation amount is $5 per person.
