RAW 2020: A Cappella Team Auditions
Calling all singers and beatboxers! Join HKYAF’s a cappella group RAW and let your voice be heard at Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2020 this November!
A cappella celebrates one of the most powerful creative instruments we have – the human voice. RAW brings together passionate young singers to work with experienced singing coach Astrid Lui and create music that showcases the rich range of sounds that the unaccompanied voice can produce. Exploring the art of intonation, rhythm, harmonising, blending and staging, the team will learn to perform a mix of musical styles, including jazz, pop and classics.
Interested singers and beatboxers are invited to submit application forms and audition videos by 13 July 2020 (instructions below). Selected singers and beatboxers will have their first performance at Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2020. Participants are required to attend all rehearsals and performances. Please refer to the schedule here.

|| AUDITION VIDEO GUIDELINES ||
Singers should submit two video files:
1. The compulsory song 7 Years by Lukas Graham sung without accompaniment. Please choose and perform the exact vocal part that is suitable for you (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). Music sheets for each vocal part are available here.
You may record your video while listening to the track with headphones on. But we should only hear you singing and not the track.
2. A two-minute pop song, sung without accompaniment. Please do not go over the time limit.
For beatboxers, please submit two video files:
1. A one-minute beatbox solo without accompaniment
2. A two-minute beatbox accompanying any pop song
• Please provide us video links by the deadline and make sure proper permissions are given to access your videos. Alternatively, you may submit .MP4, .avi or .MOV files to the Dropbox link. Please label your videos clearly with your full name so we know who has submitted the videos.
• Successful candidates will be notified via email within two weeks of the audition submission deadline.
