We’re so excited that you’re interested in acapella and we can’t wait to meet you in the fall. 
Pitches & Tones is one of the newest members of the Yale Singing Group Council (SGC), an umbrella organization that represents 17 undergraduate a cappella groups.  The SGC organizes rush, along with other events throughout the year.

A Breakdown of Rush Events

  • September 2, 2023

    Woolsey Jam

    This is the first acapella event of the year, where you’ll get to hear all the undergraduate acapella groups perform. Each group will perform one song, and it’s a great way to experience all the groups! This event will be held at Woolsey Hall.

  • September 4, 2023

    Marsh Jam

    In the second jam, each group performs two songs. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to sign up for auditions! Couldn’t make it? No worries, shoot the rush managers an email or contact the SGC and we’ll give you an audition slot. This event will be held at Marsh Lecture Hall.

  • September 7 - September 10, 2023


    We will be holding auditions between September 7 – September 10. Click here for details about what an audition for Pitches & Tones looks like! 

  • Week of September 12, 2023

    Rush Meals (Optional)

    If you receive a callback from us, you have the opportunity to sign up for a rush meal with some of our members! (Note: Rush meals are completely optional and merely a way for you to learn more about the group!)

  • September 12, 2023

    Singing Dessert

    Between auditions and callbacks, Pitches & Tones performs a full-length set and offer you free food! This is your best chance to get a feel for the kind of music we perform and our group dynamic. We will be performing in LC 101 at 7pm!

  • September 16 - September 17, 2023


    If we think we need to hear you again, we’ll send you an invite for a callback audition! Callbacks are very similar in format to your first audition, but we’ll email you the specific information you’ll need to know when we notify you of your callback invitation.

  • September 20, 2023

    Tap Night

    After your callback, your job is done! The final acapella rush event is Tap Night, which is when a capella groups will officially tap you!
