Attention BBYO Musicians! As AZA BBG IC 2014 draws near, it’s time to begin forming the IC Teen Band! For the last two years, BBYO teens from all over the world have come together online to form a band that performs at BBYO International Convention. Last year’s participation shattered expectations and this year we’re bringing it back by popular demand.
Here’s how it works:
1) If you play any instrument OR you're a singer, create an audition video no longer than 1 minute in length. The video should include your name, where you’re from, why you want to be a part of the IC 2014 Teen band and a short clip of you singing/playing. All videos should be live takes without any audio editing.
2) Upload your video to YouTube with the title “IC Teen Band 2014 (Name)” (you can list the video as public or unlisted)
3) Send the link to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “IC Teen Band 2014 (Name)”
4) Congratulate yourself for finishing the submission process!!
**All submissions must be made by Wednesday, January 15th 2014 at 11:59 pm EST**
Please only apply to be a part of the IC Teen Band if you can dedicate an appropriate amount of time in the weeks leading up to IC. This means being available for a couple conference calls/google hangouts with the entire band as well as working on music on your own to be ready for your convention performance. Also know that all teens participating in the IC Teen Band will be expected to practice at IC in the hours leading up to Opening Ceremonies on Thursday night as well as the possibility of a few other time slots throughout the convention. If you cannot dedicate this time, please reconsider applying.
We expect record amounts of submissions this year and, unfortunately, will only be able to accept a fraction of those for this year’s IC Teen Band. Know that we will try to accommodate as many musicians as possible and make this as exciting and enriching an experience as we can!
If you have any questions about the rules or submission process, please email them to Eric Hunker, AZA BBG IC 2014 Music Director, email@example.com.
Get excited and showcase your talents!!
