AUDITION FOR US
WHAT TO EXPECT
Are you excited for auditions? We definitely are! To help you through the process, we've created this page to give you all the information you need for our 2021 Auditions.
First, we'll begin with some simple vocal exercises to warm up your voice. Then, we'll ask you to sing the shoe part of our arrangement of Shake It Out by Florence + the Machine (the "shoe part" refers to the background music the group sings behind a soloist). You may pick whichever one of the four voice parts (Sop. I, Sop. II, Alto I, or Alto II) you feel most comfortable singing. Don’t worry too much; you only have to learn measures 1 through 16 the song! The PDF of the sheet music can be downloaded from the icon below. We have also included files where you can listen to the sheet music being played.
After that, there will be some note matching exercises. The final part of your audition will be a 30-60 second solo of any song of your choice. We recommend singing a verse and a chorus of a song that showcases your voice and your love for singing!
If you have any questions about auditions or any other part of the rush process, please feel free to contact one of our Rush Managers.
Directions to Auditions: Head to Saybrook College and look for the Saybrook/Branford Room in the corridor connecting Saybrook and Branford near Saybrook entryway B. Below is a map indicating the location of our table!
