FAQs

Do I need to do audition separately for the Singing Hoosiers, and opera choruses and the concert choirs?

Yes, however you only need to do one audition for our concert choirs (separate from your Singing Hoosiers audition). One audition will suffice to be considered for participation in all concert choirs and opera choruses. 

Who needs a choral placement audition?

Participation in Singing Hoosiers is open to any Indiana University student, by audition. If you are not a music major, it is an elective course. You must register, but you receive TWO FREE credits.  If you are a music major, then you are required to be in a concert choir or Singing Hoosiers.

All students in the Jacobs School of Music participate in an ensemble each semester of enrollment. The exceptions are students enrolled in most doctoral degree programs and some master’s students who have successfully completed four semesters of fall and spring X70 ensemble.

Undergraduate and graduate master’s students who are not registered for an orchestra, band, piano accompanying or early music ensemble are required to audition for choral ensemble placement.

What are the Varsity Singers?

The Varsity Singers are members within the Singing Hoosiers who elect to perform specialized advanced dancing and choreography. Dance auditions for interested students are held a few weeks after classes resume in August. If selected, additional rehearsal time is required on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:40-6:00 and on Sundays 1-3pm. Members receive an additional free academic credit for their participation.
