Rehearsal Schedule

Audition Policy

Yearly membership is suggested, and auditions take place 1-2 weeks before each term. The group often goes on a regional tour. Every few years, they have sung at Carnegie Hall. Auditions are open to all students, but music majors, minors, and graduate students have priority over non-music majors. The auditions consist of checking vocal range, matching intervals, singing within chords, and repeating rhythm patterns. If students wish, they may sing a prepared song.
