Audition Details

Some information about our auditions:

  1. We start off with scales to warm up your voice and get a sense of your range.
  2. Then we do a few swells on single notes to hear your dynamic control.
  3. Next are four short pitch-matching exercises, in which we play a few notes on the piano and you sing them back.
  4. Then, we’d like you to sing a short solo of your choice. The solo can be anything from Canada’s National Anthem to Olivia Rodrigo’s latest banger, but your best bet is to sing something you’re comfortable with and that shows off your voice. The solo should be no more than 60 seconds (about a verse and chorus).

Don’t worry if you can’t read music or have never spent time in a choral group before — several of our most talented members did not have any previous musical experience before joining the Footnotes!

Callback information will be provided during fall auditions.

Being in the Footnotes is unlike anything you have ever been involved with, and it is more than worth the effort. Our auditions are designed to be low-pressure, relaxed and enjoyable. If you have more questions about auditioning for the Footnotes, don’t hesitate to reach out! Email our President, Josh Babu, at jbabu@princeton.edu with any questions.
