The DQ of Amherst College


Check back here in the next few weeks for more detailed info and dates for 2016 auditions!

If you would like to audition to be a part of the DQ, there are several ways to check us out!

First, come see us at the Activities Fair this Monday, September 5th and sign up for our email list!

The Freshmen Showcase will take place on Sunday, September 11th in Johnson Chapel. Every a cappella group will be performing and it is a great way to get a glimpse of a cappella at Amherst!

After the show, all of the a cappella groups (including DQ!) will be storming the freshmen dorms common rooms to perform some more, so make sure not to miss it!

Following dorm storm, auditions sheets will go up in Buckley and you can sign up for an audition time. Auditions will take place the week after the showcase in the basement of James and Stearns. For your audition, you’ll need an audition song (a verse and a chorus) from any genre. We’ll also test your range and pitch recognition.

Callbacks will follow the initial audition and will take place in the evening.

You don’t need any prior performance experience to audition, so if you have any interest please come try out! We would love to have you.

We are so excited to meet our new Q for the class of 2020 and can’t wait to get to singing and working with you!
