Clarice Smith Performing Arts
8270 Alumni Drive, College Park, Maryland 20742
Auditions for UMD's A Capella Groups are here and we are very excited to see some incredible talent from students! Come if you love to sing and/or beatbox, and love performing!
— WHERE: Clarice Performing Arts Center (PAC). Specific rooms for auditions will be posted in this event later.
— WHEN: Auditions: February 10th and 11th at 7:00 pm
Callbacks will be Tuesday, February 12th
— WHAT TO PREPARE: One verse and chorus of any song (preferably not musical theatre) and a verse and chorus of a different song for callbacks. In addition to the solo portion of your audition and/or callback, some groups may do musical exercises to fully hear your sound! Groups will also teach you a segment of one of their arrangements based on your voice part to hear how you blend with them. After callbacks, you will be notified of the group's decision!
— CALLBACKS: You will be notified via email, phone call, or the list will be posted on the group's website/social media pages after each audition day. The groups will tell you how you they will notify you about callbacks during your audition (or just ask)!
Also, on the day of callbacks (February 12) we will post what time you should arrive at the Clarice for callbacks, depending on which groups you get invited back to.
Please keep checking this event for updates on room numbers and for more information about callbacks!
Be prepared for a long night so feel free to bring homework and snacks! Also, make sure to only come to ONE of the two days of auditions, either the 10th or 11th but NOT to both :)
