WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE
Counterpoint is Stanford University's second-oldest and only all-femme a cappella group. We have recorded twelve albums and have been featured thrice in Best Of College A Cappella albums.
Counterpoint's repertoire is diverse, and we focus on arranging and performing music created by women and people of color. All of our songs are arranged by current or past members, and we even perform original music! This year, we're excited to create music together despite being miles away from each other. We're hoping to explore different arranging styles, repertoire that complements trios and quartets, and workshops to teach all members beatboxing, music arranging, and music production.
We are recognized both on and off campus for our original arrangements our love of music, our strong sisterhood, and, of course, our BDE — our dress code exudes Black & Denim Energy... what else would BDE stand for?
For this year, we ask that you submit a video audition with the following components:
Start off by introducing your name, hometown, pronouns if comfortable, and the song you'll be singing.
~1 minute of you singing a song of your choice. Choose a song that you feel comfortable singing, and shows off your voice and your style! Avoid using any backing tracks/accompaniment -- we're here to hear YOU sing <3
Name the video file with the format: "LASTNAME_FIRSTNAME" and upload it to the free Google Drive under your Stanford SUNet ID account. Set the sharing settings to "anyone with the link can view".
That's it, short and sweet! Take a deep breath and know that we in Counterpoint are here to support you through this process. Email our President, Emily, or our Music Director, Ella, if you have any questions, concerns, or last-minute AAHHHHHs about the audition process!
