So you want to be a rockstar?
Great! Stanford's a cappella groups hold auditions during the first week of fall quarter every year. Auditions for the 2018-2019 school year will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 25 and Wednesday, Sept. 26 in Old Union 122. All Stanford students are welcome and encouraged to audition—the group has included both undergraduates and coterms, who joined the group anywhere from their freshman to their senior year—and no singing experience is required. Sign up online or at the Harmonics table in White Plaza during New Student Orientation!
During your audition, we'll start with some scales and simple pitch matching exercises—don't stress about these! We're not looking for perfection, we just want to get a sense of your vocal range. Then, we'll ask you to sing a 30 to 60 second snippet of whatever you want! We'd recommend choosing a song with which you feel comfortable that fits your voice and showcases what you can do. Be sure to have fun with it!
We can't wait to hear you sing!
