Fall 2015 Auditions

August 3, 2015

Whether your previous musical experience consists of 12 years of choir, high school a cappella, jamming in the shower, or being weaned on Bulgarian lullabies, you are absolutely the correct woman to audition for The Yale Slavic Chorus.  If you want to join Yale’s first women’s organization, or if you are a fan of singing (especially in different languages), cooking, cheese, exploring far-off countries, and attending crazy music festivals, the Slavic Chorus is the place for you. We may sing in more than seven different Slavic (and a couple other) languages, but you are not required to speak or have any knowledge of Russian, Ukranian, Georgian, or the like (most of us don’t!). Here’s some quick pointers for your audition:

  • Prepare an excerpt of a song that’s good for your range and important to you to sing for us
  • Come in with an open mind! We may ask you to do some stuff that you haven’t done before, but don’t be scared!
