Originally founded in 2010, The Ohio State of Mind is The Ohio State University's premier all-gender a cappella group. The group currently consists of 17 talented vocalists from a range of backgrounds and majors who share a common passion for making music. The Ohio State of Mind recently competed in ICCA Finals as one of ten top groups to perform internationally placing first in their Semifinal and Quarterfinal regions and receiving numerous outstanding awards in arrangement, choreography, and vocal percussion. Aside from ICCA, OSM performs at events and invitationals, has released an EP album Coming Home, which can be found on all streaming platforms, and enjoys creating music videos and digital collabs.
OSM is looking for new members for the 2022-2023 school year! We welcome all voice parts (including vocal percussion) and are excited to hear your voice!
- Auditions will be held Saturday, September 3rd with times available 8am-5pm for sign up. The sign up sheet is posted below and can also be found via linktree in our Instagram bio @theohiostateofmind.
- Auditionees should prepare a verse and chorus of a contemporary song. Highlight your voice- choose a song that complements you! (impressive high/low notes, large range, strong belt, runs, etc.) Please no musical theatre. We may also do a quick range test and sight reading excerpt. These are not determining factors for your audition, just exercises!
- The audition should take approximately 5-8 minutes.
