Quaker Notes will be holding auditions this year virtually! We welcome all to audition - no a cappella or theory experience required.
Read the instructions below and submit your audition via this google form:
The link will close on Thursday, September 10th @4pm EST
Open call auditions will take place through video submission, and the window for submission will be from Monday, September 7th @ 8:00 AM EST until Thursday, September 10th @ 4:00 PM EST!
For your video submission, you will need to include the following two elements:
1. A verse + chorus of a pre-rehearsed solo of your choosing.
This can truly be any song that you feel showcases your vocal ability and that you feel confident performing!
2. Ascending/Descending scales
You can find the download link to the audio for these scales HERE:

When submitting these videos on the google forms, PLEASE UPLOAD AS EITHER A PRIVATE YOUTUBE LINK OR A GOOGLE DRIVE LINK
Rather than upload a large video file, this method will prevent issues with storage on google forms.
Please ensure that the sharing settings are such that each group will have access to the video!
"Auto-tuning, lip synching to a pre-recorded track, or video tampering of any kind will result in disqualification from the ACK audition process. There are no exceptions in this case, as it prevents auditionees from having an equal playing field." - A Cappella Council
The Quaker Notes are the University of Pennsylvania's premiere, nationally acclaimed all-female a cappella group.
The Quaker Notes sing music of all types of genres, including pop, rock, r&b, and alternative, and all of our songs are elected and arranged by our members. We host 2 yearly concerts and perform at a variety of events and venues throughout the year, including opening (three times!) for Grammy Award-Winning Pentatonix and taking the stage at Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular!
