Whim ‘n Rhythm and the Whiffenpoofs are excited to announce auditions for the class of 2023! While this has been an unprecedented year, we are so excited to welcome a new class to take on the mantle, hopefully under sunnier skies. We'll be hosting an information session about the auditions process and expectations for the year on February 4th at 6 pm EST — please find the recording here ! Use this form to indicate interest and we'll contact you to schedule an audition. Auditions will take place February 18th-20th.
Sign-ups for auditions are now live! Please sign up for an audition slot here. If you are running for Business Manager or Musical Director, be sure to sign up for two consecutive slots.
The audition will consist of warm-ups, ear training, optional sight-reading, a blending quartet exercise, a solo of your choice, and a short interview. For the blending exercise, you will be singing "Softly, As I Leave You," measures 1-17, in a prerecorded quartet. Please prepare a voice part of your choice - we suggest trying all four and choosing the one you feel most comfortable singing, even if it isn't your usual voice part. For your solo, please prepare a verse and chorus of any song you feel best shows off your voice.
We can't wait to hear you!
