It’s that time of year again, and we couldn’t be more excited! The fall auditions for the Compulsive Lyres will be held in the Michigan Room of the Michigan Union from 5:00 PM to midnight on September 12th and Room 2105D of the Michigan Union on September 13th. If you’re interested in auditioning, and did not sign up at Acarush, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an audition time. We can’t wait to hear you sing!
Also, please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook! We’ll give most important updates on those two sites, so it’s important that you follow both to not miss anything.
First Round: General Auditions
- Vocalization: to warm you up and test your range.
- Tonal Memory: we play a series of notes, you sing them back to us.
- Your Solo: your chance to show off your voice. You may choose any song from the Jazz/Pop/R&B genre to show us you can be Divas and Rock Stars! We will listen to a verse/refrain of you a cappella, and written music is not necessary to bring. We just ask that you try not to sing Disney, Classical, or Musical Theater selections since these arenÕt the type of music we sing, and donÕt give us a good idea of how you will sound in our group.
- Sightreading: quick and painless – we promise!
Second Round (Callbacks):
We already know you can sing, so callbacks are all about discovering how well your voice blends with the group. They are run much like a normal rehearsal: we will warm up with you, teach you parts of some songs in our current repertoire, and rock out a cappella style!
