Welcome to Auditions 2016! We understand that you may be intimidated by the A Cappella Rush process here at UC San Diego. First of all, we want to assure you that a cappella auditions are not a “test” — the process is simply a tool for all the groups to get to know you as a person and, most importantly, as a singer. Second of all, we encourage you to audition for every group that you can possibly audition for — this way you can determine which group is the best fit for you. Auditions will take place September 22nd through September 29th. Note: Auditions will be are by appointment, but feel free to WALK-IN.
Our selection process is guided by two equally important components: the audition and the callback.
During the “audition” portion you will be able to showcase your solo voice and introduce yourself as an individual. The audition will include a range test, sight reading, and a 60 second solo of your style and choice. Prior to your audition you will have the opportunity to chat with us and learn all about life as a Tritone from one of our AcaRush representatives!
We invite a select group of auditionees to participate in the “callback.” During this portion of your audition, we will be conducting a “mock rehearsal” where you can meet/bond with fellow auditionees and experience what it’s like to sing in our group. The focus of this component is to see how you perform, both musically and socially, in a group setting. The best way to approach this portion? Have fun!
Callbacks will be held on Sunday, October 2nd, 1:30 - 4:30PM in the Thich Nhat Hanh Room (formerly the Bamboo Room) in the Student Center.
