Coffeehouse: Winter Wonderland
Virtual Event – Instagram
November 21

It’s that time of year again, Christmas Coffeehouse season! Join us for a virtual Coffeehouse show on our Instagram. This event will feature the best student bands, performances, and videos for you to watch on November 21… so grab your roommates and be ready to take a journey with us through winter wonderland. Make sure you watch live, as we’ll have dozens of prizes to give away that night.

Looking to tryout? Check out our revised plan below, as all tryouts will be virtual, so make sure you submit your videos by the deadline listed below!

Tryout Information

We can’t wait to hear what you have prepared for us at tryouts. If you’re unsure of which song to choose, just know that everything from Christmas music legend Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” to Relient K’s “Sleigh Ride” is fair game. One small piece of advice, try to avoid doing a mashup of multiple Christmas songs, it might hurt your chance to get into the show. With that being said, nothing is stopping you from getting creative and singing a holiday classic to the melody of another hit song. Good luck!

Christmas Coffeehouse Tryouts will move virtual for fall 2020.
