2015 Spring Auditions

Calling all singers! The Dins will be holding preliminary spring auditions next semester! Check this page for more updates in the future.

Please contact the Dins’ President at president@dins.com with any questions about the audition process, described below.

The Audition Process

The Din & Tonics hold auditions each fall and spring. The audition process for the Din & Tonics is rigorous, but it is also immensely enjoyable. The process has two stages: preliminary auditions and callbacks.

Preliminary auditions are held over a period of 2-3 days and are open to all male degree-seeking Harvard students. The preliminary audition, which lasts approximately 5 minutes, consists of a range test, some short pitch-matching exercises, and an optional sight-reading selection. Additionally, auditionees are asked to prepare a short solo in advance of the audition.

Callback auditions. After all auditionees have been heard, the Dins select a small number who are “called-back” for the second stage of the audition process. During callback auditions, auditionees learn and perform selections of the group’s repertoire. Auditionees also have a chance to get to know the Dins themselves.

Once the three nights of callback auditions are complete, the Din & Tonics welcome their newest members, who officially join the group the next morning.

We hope to see you at our auditions!
