“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.”—John 1:4
Attention all performers: We are looking for students in grades 6 through 12 who are vocalists and instrumentalists of all kinds, who would like to be a part of the Light of the World Christmas Concert. You do not need to be a band or chorus member to audition. We are looking forward to seeing many new faces for this exciting program!
Monday, September 15 and Tuesday, September from 3pm to 5pm
Everyone MUST come on Monday, September 15 to be considered. Do not plan to wait for Tuesday, which is intended only for those for whom there is not enough time on Monday.
TBD - first week of December
It is with great excitement that we look forward to this year’s Christmas Music Concert, which will give dedicated students an opportunity to perform using the unique and special gifts that the Lord has given them. This concert is completely voluntary and, therefore, requires a complete commitment.
Please print and read the Audition Information and Permission letter carefully and go over it together as a family. The heart of the Fine Arts Department is to come alongside you as parents to help students make the best individual choices regarding their extracurricular involvements. Please know that for any production all cast members will need to be fully committed to rehearsals. This concert will require a great deal of teamwork and it is important that everyone involved give it the highest priority.
"For which of you intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether

Being ‘called back’ does not necessarily indicate that a student is being considered for a part. Some students are cast never having been called back. Other students that are called back may not be cast at all. Call-backs are reserved for the sake of the director to make the best decisions possible.
- Students should come prepared to perform one song from the selections in the packet.
- If a student is not available when they are called, they will move to the end of the schedule.
- Because of space and distractions, we kindly ask that all parents wait in the lobby.
Parents and students should be aware that a student’s behavior in class as well as their academic progress is taken into consideration during the audition process.
Cast list will be posted Friday, September 19 on the wall outside the Band Room. All cast members must attend a meeting on Friday, September 19 from 3pm-4pm.
