THIS YEAR'S MEMBERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN! ANYONE INTERESTED IN AUDITIONING SHOULD KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR AUDITIONS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE FALL 2015 SEMESTER!
1) Is For Good Measure hard to get into?
Because we are a small group, there is limited space available.This shouldn't discourage anybody from trying out! Some of our most valued members never sang in front of anyone before their FGM audition. A willingness to try new things (like beatboxing!) and be a team player are some of the qualities we look for in new members. There are also lots of opportunities to be involved in outside of singing. We are always looking for help with things such as fundraising, management, graphic design, and arranging music!
2) What is the difference between you and your best friends, Acapocalypse?
FGM is traditionally a treble choir, while Acapocalypse is SATB. Because of this, both groups look for different types of voices. Both are performance and competition groups.
3) What are auditions like?
Because FGM and Acapocalypse are both part of the Emmanuel College A Cappella club, both groups hold auditions at the same time. You can select which group you want to audition for, or just try out for both! You should come prepared to sing a chorus and a verse from a song that showcases your voice. Because we typically cover popular music, this is recommended, but any kind of music is welcome! We may also ask you to beat box and sing scales or harmonies. Callbacks may or may not be held. This is not a scary experience!
4) What is a rehearsal like?
We rehearse two nights a week, occasionally three. Rehearsals are a lot of work, but also a lot of fun! We ask for a huge commitment, but all of our members are able to find time to participate in other activities on campus.
