ALL YOU NEED FOR CALLBACKS!

Congratulations on your New Blue callback! We're so excited to hear you sing for us again. Here's a rundown of what to expect in your callback:

 

Vocal Warm-ups and ear exercises:

Same as auditions!

 

A short rehearsal with members of New Blue:

We'd like you to learn an excerpt from "(Just) What You're Doin' to Me," one of our singing Valentine's that we'll sing as a group. See below for audio files and sheet music, and see your callback sheet to find out which part to learn!

 

A short solo from the New Blue's repertoire, sung with the group:

We'd love to hear you on a quick excerpt from one of our following arrangements. To hear examples, check out the tracks below from our two most recent albums. PDF sheet music can be found at the bottom of this page, along with audio practice tracks and performances by the New Blue, so you know what to expect! 

 

Another solo of your choice:

Feel free to sing anything that suits your voice and contrasts as much as possible with the solo you sang at your first audition. There will be a few notes from our Musical Director on your callback card.

Phrasing and ensemble exercise:

We'll teach you a part of another quartet, and then we'll sing through it together! No pressure, and no preparation necessary. 

If you have any questions about music or callback prep, please feel free to email thenewblueofyale@gmail.com, or our Musical Director, Laura, at laura.clapp@yale.edu.
