Thank you to all those who auditioned!
We saw some great talent, and we're super excited to welcome three new members to the group. If you missed your chance to audition, keep an eye out for spring auditions!
Want to join The Harvard Callbacks?
If you are a current undergraduate at Harvard and are interested in joining The Harvard Callbacks, make sure you come out to our 2016 preliminary auditions, which are taking place THIS WEEK from Saturday 9/3 - Monday 9/5 in Memorial Hall 303! Come out to audition during one of the times listed, and check out what to expect below. We're very excited to meet you and hear you SANG!
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 preliminary 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!
Saturday, 9/3 from 12:00-3:00pm in Memorial Hall 303
Sunday, 9/4 from 12:00-3:00pm in Memorial Hall 303
Monday, 9/5 from 3:30-6:30pm in Memorial Hall 303
To get to Memorial Hall room 303, exit Annenberg and take the elevator immediately on your left to the third floor. We will have a member of the group there to meet you and direct you to the audition room!
Callbacks will be held during the week of 9/5-9/9!
How Auditions Work
- 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. You will also sing a short solo from a song the group performs.
- A second-round callback in which you learn another block and sing another solo of our choice.
- 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.
