Spring 2022 Audition Information

Auditions for Spring 2022 are open from January 19th at 12:00 AM (EST) until January 28th at 5:00 PM (EST)!

How auditions will work this semester—read below!

You must be a Georgetown University undergraduate student to audition for the Phantoms. Please record all audition components in ONE video, in the order that is listed below, and upload the file or the YouTube link to this Google Form, which will also ask for some more information about you!


Scales: These are a series of ascending and descending notes that help you warm up your voice while also giving us a sense of your range and your ability to match pitch. You may sing along to the scales using a vowel of your choice, such as “ah” or “oo.” You will start by singing ascending scales and finish by singing descending scales, and you can begin both in the octave most comfortable for you. The ascending and descending scales will be marked with separate timestamps in this video, and you may pause and proceed to the next section whenever you struggle to continue singing at the highest and lowest ends of your vocal range. You may play the scales video through headphones and sing a cappella, or you may play the backing track at a moderately low volume through your computer or another speaker and sing along that way.

 

Solo: Your solo component of the audition video will ask you to sing a verse and a chorus of a song of your choice. You may sing a song from any genre, but please do not sing Disney or musical theater. We recommend you choose a fairly well-known song so that it is easier for us to judge your pitch accuracy with something we are familiar with. If you have any doubts about the song you want to sing, please email us and we will be happy to help! We also ask that you do not have a backing track or headphones on during your solo. You are welcome to play the starting note or the start of the song to get a sense of the key, but please sing this entirely a cappella. Additionally, if you have any rapping or beatboxing skills, you’re more than welcome to show them off in this part of the audition, but you may only do so after you’ve finished your verse and chorus.

Callbacks: Callback decisions will be released no later than January 29th and will take place in the evening of either Monday, January 31st, or Tuesday, February 1st. Assuming in-person events are allowed to continue, callbacks will be held in person. People who receive callbacks will need to prepare a verse and chorus of another song. 


If you have any questions at all about the audition process, head to our socials and find some audition advice from our current members or email us at guphantoms@gmail.com! Also, don’t forget to have fun! We know you all have wonderful voices already, and we can’t wait to hear them!
