Rush Calendar 2019
AUGUST 25th: Woolsey Hall Jam
The biggest on-campus concert of the year. All sixteen a cappella groups affiliated with the Singing Group Council will perform in one of Yale's most beautiful buildings. This is the beginning of the rush process, but don't worry - no groups will be holding audition sign-ups. This is purely for fun, and for you to see all of the groups on campus in one place.
August 27th: Dwight Hall Jam
While Woolsey is the biggest on-campus concert, Dwight is definitely the most important. Every group performs again, and when the final note of the concert has been sung, audition sign-ups begin to find the next generation of Proof. Get there early to guarantee a good seat near the Proof table!
August 31st-September 1st: Auditions in Pierson
Auditions sound scary, but Proof auditions are honestly a lot of fun. It'll be like a mini rehearsal - we'll do some warm-up exercises and then hear you sing a short solo. Trust us, we've heard everything (one Proofie auditioned with Row, Row, Row Your Boat!). So, whether you've sung professionally, or just love singing along to the radio, come in and sing something you love and we'll all be there with friendly faces and a helping hand!
Beginning September 2nd: Rush Meals
Have a blast spending time with Proof's vibrant, hilarious and loving members in a beautiful residential college dining hall. It's not a test - just a chance for us to get to know you better. Every member of Proof has a quirky and unique collection of interests and passions and we can't wait to hear about yours!
September 5th, 8:30 pm:
Singing Dessert Concert in the Nick Chapel Theater
As you may be able to guess by our name, Proof takes dessert very seriously, and our singing dessert will be no different! It's a chance to hear a full-length concert and get to know the members of Proof over our two favorite things: singing and food. It's often the highlight of rush, so keep this one on the calendar.
September 7th-8th: Callbacks in Pierson
A chance to show a different side of your incredible talent and spend a little more time with Proof. We'll do some similar exercises to the ones from your audition and you'll be able to sing another short solo of your choice.
September 11th: TAP NIGHT
An exciting night of tradition and fun, as we welcome the next generation of Proof! Keep on your toes and await the sounds of a very very excited Proof singing to your door.
