OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB?
There are 2 rounds of auditions. The first round is an individual audition where you sing a song of your choice for us, followed by a short interview. Shortlisted applicants will then be sorted into groups for the second audition round, where you will learn and perform an a cappella piece with your group.
“I joined SMU VOIX because I wanted to try acapella and I saw that SMU VOIX had many interesting events and productions such as DYAC that seemed so fun and cool!
The people here are like family <3 It’s always so enjoyable singing and doing fun crazy things together and it makes my University life so fulfilling with nice memories to look back on.”

“I’ve always had a strong passion for singing and performing ever since I was young, always recording covers and experimenting to find my sound. I would love to be part of a community of like-minded people who share this same love for music, as well as to further my passion in a important/memorable phase of my life, A.K.A in University :-)”
