The Signup

You can sign up through an online server called Acaspot starting Week 0. You will be asked to select a time slot and fill out a bit of basic information so we can get to know you! Shortly after, you will receive a confirmation email with final details about your audition. We will also send a reminder email the evening before your audition. While we recommend signing up through Acaspot, we allow walk-in auditions. We encourage everyone to audition, regardless of vocal experience! To go to Acaspot and sign up, click HERE.

***If time slots are completely full, you can still come in to audition! We will always accept walk-ins!***

The Audition

Now that you’ve signed up, here comes the fun part! For your audition, you will need to prepare 30 seconds of a song of your choice. Choose a song that best shows off your vocal talent and gives us a taste of your personality! We will be able to play a starting note if you need one. After your solo, we will ask you to sing a short collection of random notes (either tonal memory or sight reading—you choose!). We may also have you sing some scales in order to determine your vocal range. Finally, the four or five Sigs in the room with you may ask you a few additional questions if your Audition Form left anything unclear. The whole thing will take no longer than 5 minutes and we assure you that the audition is absolutely nothing to stress about. Just bring a smile and confidence and show us what you’ve got! We can’t wait to meet you!

The Callback

We will send out the callback results via email to all auditionees after 10pm on October 1, the last day of auditions. The number we invite back depends on how many girls auditioned, which vocal parts we need, and how many girls we are looking to take. The callback will run very similarly to our weekly rehearsals: you will learn a part of a few songs in our current repertoire and have the chance to solo on them as well! This will allow us to see you within the context of our group: how you blend with the current members, how quickly you learn music, how you solo in front of your peers, and the energy you would bring to our group! We will contact you sometime in the late evening after callbacks, either by phone or email, to let you know our final results.
