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 15 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.
