What to Expect

The Orangehaus staff will interview you immediately after check-in to make sure you are assigned to the right music business track based on your background and interest. After the interview, you may audition (optional) to be assigned to a band, and songwriters may perform an original song (optional) for our producer who will select students to record their songs at Gaither Studios.

Auditions

If you plan to audition, be prepared to perform a couple of songs that best showcase your talent. We will have a drum set, keyboard, and amp on stage for you to use during the audition, and lockers will be provided for storing instruments during camp. You may audition on more than one instrument. Songwriters are encouraged to choose their best original song as one of their audition pieces, and if possible, bring a lead sheet of the song (melody, lyrics, chord chart). If you do not have a lead sheet, then just bring a printed copy of the lyrics.
