“Rush” is the name of the audition process for a cappella singing groups at Yale. While called by the same name, the Rush process is different from a sorority or fraternity-style rush. It is usually about a 2 week-long process of auditions, concerts, and meals, culminating in a “tap night,” when the new members of groups are selected. The process is designed to introduce interested singers to the wide spectrum of a cappella singing opportunities at Yale, as well as give more in depth views of each group’s style, repertoire, and personality.
