Thank you for checking out the Harvard Pops Orchestra. We are so excited to meet you, albeit in a virtual format. Although the fall semester will not be a typical one, Pops will be active. We will find a way to channel our creative musical antics any way possible! COVID-19 has nothing on Harvard’s Funniest Orchestra.
Auditions are a simple affair, consisting of a 2-3 minute video-recorded solo of your choosing, followed by live sight reading, and joke telling (the joke telling won't actually affect admission). The recording should be from the last year or so, and if it’s longer than 3 minutes, feel free to send the video as is!
Once we view your recording, we will schedule a 5 minute zoom call and then send you the sight-reading music by email. After you finish playing, we will spend the rest of the time getting to know you, and you can also ask us anything about Pops. Zoom can never replace in-person interaction, but we won’t let a worldwide pandemic stop us from meeting all of you.

We can’t wait for you to blow us all away!
