As you all know, when a man really loves an a capella group something special happens. I won’t go into the messy details, but it can be summed up with one word: auditions. Once a year, as the summer sun cools and the leaves begin to turn, Asterik accepts a brand new crop of young daredevils looking to make their way in the dog-eat-dog world that is a capella. There will be laughter and there will be tears (of laughter), but most of all there will be singing.
For those of you who think they know the process, be warned: everything is different and nothing is the same.
This year, for the first time ever, all Northwestern a capella groups will be coordinating their auditions with one another and holding them 2 weeks later in the school year (to allow the freshmen to get the full WW experience and not feel overwhelmed as soon as they set foot on campus). Change can be scary, but never fear! All the information you could ever want is available in the “Auditions” tab at the top of our page. For minute-by-minute updates of the audition processes regarding all Northwestern a capella groups (and a disgusting number of youtube videos/bad puns), check out the 2014 NACCA auditions facebook page right here.
If you don’t feel like wading through all of that information overload, just know that Asterik’s auditions are on Monday (Sept. 29) in Tech L251 and Tuesday (Sept. 30) in McTribb 2111
Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again. We’ve been an all-male a capella group for close to two decades, but this Thursday through Saturday (Nov 14-16), we become more than that. We become men. That’s right folks, this weekend starting at 11 PM you can stop by the Jones Great Room for THREE full nights of testosterone-ridden transformation, singing, and general entertainment. We’ll see you there.
HEY. YOU. If you haven’t auditioned for Asterik, the strapingest young men to ever sing contemporary pop songs without instruments, you can STILL come down to Kresge 3-420 between 9am and noon tomorrow (Sunday).
