All preliminary auditions will be held in-person in the Memorial Hall Basement.

Everyone auditioning will be placed into an ensemble or course. Our auditions are user-friendly and help us place each singer into the right ensemble. Preliminary auditions consist of:

  • Vocalizing (with piano) on various scales and patterns to determine range and evaluate tone
  • Simple melodic patterns we play that you will sing back to us to check your pitch memory
  • A short sight-singing example that we will work on together
  • You sing something for us: either something you’ve prepared (it can be anything: aria, art song, folk song, hymn tune, musical theater, etc.), or if you didn’t bring anything prepared then we’ll just sing Happy Birthday!

2. After your Preliminary Audition, you will either…

  1. 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 audition information flyer for more details.
  2. Be accepted into the Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus. No callback is necessary. OR
  3. Be accepted into Skills for Singing. No callback is necessary.
