Come audition for the Meddiebempsters! Join a tight-knit group noted for both their musicianship and their sense of humor. Before you come out early next week, however, there are a few things to remember.
First, we want you to do your best. Nothing would make us happier than to see you crush the audition. Second, consider your song choice. Much of our repertoire is barbershop and occurs without a soloist, so blend is very important. So, if you have a song that shows off your open, resonant sound while singing both high and low and loud and soft, choose that! Also, all auditions are performed a cappella, so no piano accompaniment. Third, it is important to note that the close knit nature of the Meddiebempster organization is built from the fall of your first year. It is much, much more difficult (although not impossible) to join the group as a sophomore as we prefer to keep our close-knit class years together. So unfortunately there is no kicking the can down the road on this one. Come audition! It’s a blast. Also, we’re serious about the joke. It shows us some of your personality, but in the end don’t fret over it too much.
