Want To Join The Callbacks?
If you are a current undergraduate at Harvard and are interested in joining the Callbacks, make sure you come out to our fall auditions, which are occurring during shopping week this September! Come out to audition during one of the times listed, and check out what to expect below. We’re very excited to meet you!
- A preliminary audition in which you sing scales, do some pitch-matching, and sing a verse and a chorus of a song of your choice for the group (about ten minutes).
- A first-round callback in which we teach you two of our “blocks” – the music we sing behind the soloist. You’ll get to sing with the group to test for blend and learning ability.
- A second-round callback in which you learn another block and sing a solo from a song the group performs.
- A “Final Night” audition round, in which you learn more about the group, learn one of our very favorite blocks, and perform a full-length solo of your choice for the group.
These rounds take place over the course of a week, so you have time to get to know the group and let us get to know you! It’s an incredibly rewarding experience and truly enjoyable both for the auditionees and the group members.
We hope to see you in the fall!

What To Prepare
Though experience is helpful, no prior experience with singing is necessary at all – some of our most talented members had only ever sung in the shower before joining the group!
For the first audition, all we ask is that you prepare a verse and a chorus of a song of your choice to sing for us. We’ll take care of the rest!
