First of all, LHP thanks you for your interest in auditioning to our group!
Fall Auditions are usually held in a joint event with other UCD a cappella groups. Although the process may vary each year, you'll most likely need a 30 sec - 1 min solo of your song choice, including scales and tonal memory exercises.
After auditions, you will be notified if you are invited for our callbacks!
How do I sign up?
There is no need to sign up! Simply show up to the event. **COVID-19 UPDATE: The majority of the groups are doing auditions at the beginning of Fall Quarter 2020. There will be two audition options: in-person (socially distanced of course) and a video or zoom submission. (Keep an eye out for any updates!)
What should I sing?
We suggest singing a verse and a chorus of a song that you're comfortable with but also shows off your vocal talent!
What are rehearsals like?
We typically rehearse two times a week, Wednesday (7:30PM-10PM) and Sunday (12-3PM). In addition to this, we add another rehearsal day (Monday 8PM-10PM) during big performances and ICCA season, which usually starts in January, and we may also have sectionals for each part to further strengthen our performance and knowledge of the music. For rehearsal, we expect each member to be punctual, be prepared, and be focused. But of course, we fool around every now and then!
Can I audition for more than one group?
Of course! There is an abundance of a cappella groups in UC Davis! One of our very talented alumni, Christian Baltazar was actually in two other groups! Just make sure there won't be any time conflicts.
The Lounge Lizards
Davis Chamber Choir
The Greek Beats (sorority)
Do I have to be a UCD student to audition?
Because of ICCA rules, yes. But you can definitely be a grad or PhD student!
I'm a vocal percussionist/beatboxer, do I still have to sing?
Yes, we'd still like to hear your voice. But don't worry! We will take into consideration if you primarily beatbox.
