First of all, LHP thank you for your interest in auditioning for our group! Here are some details that might be helpful in your decision-making process if you plan on auditioning this winter:
In-Person: In-person auditions will be on campus in Olson 6! To satisfy campus policies, masks will be required at all times, no exceptions! Please come prepared to do scales, pitch-matching, and a 30 sec-1 minute solo song of your choice!
Virtual Submissions: Please send us a video of you introducing yourself (name, grade, pronouns, favorite meme) and 30 sec-1 minute of you singing a song of your choice! Submit as early as January 3rd, but the deadline is JANUARY 11TH! Please email your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org
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! Additionally, we suggest singing a song you really resonate with, we would love to see how you feel and deliver the words you sing. :)
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.
