August 30th to September 4th
This audition consists of scales, ear- and pitch-memory exercises, and sight-reading in order to evaluate voice, ear, and sight-reading abilities. A prepared piece is not required.
The result of your preliminary audition will take ONE of the following three forms:
1. You will be called-back for a second audition with a quartet. At this point, you are a member of the Harvard Choruses, which chorus, however, is determined after callbacks (see below).
2. You will be accepted into the Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus. No callback is necessary.
3. You will be accepted into Skills for Singing.
You will attend a mobs rehearsal with the choirs. During this rehearsal, you will learn more about the individual groups and an audition excerpt to perform in a quartet with current choir members.
The quartet audition will last 5-10 minutes. All auditionees will be notified of their audition results before the first day of rehearsal on September 6th, Study Card Day.
