Do you like to sing? Or know someone that does? The MadHatters are holding auditions for the Fall 2023 semester!


Founded in 1997, the MadHatters are the oldest a cappella group at UW-Madison. We are an all-male, student-managed professional performance group. Here’s a few reasons why you should consider auditioning for us:


We’re a tight-knit and friendly group of guys with different backgrounds, personalities, and majors!

We travel regularly and perform paid shows around Wisconsin. This academic year’s performance slate includes shows in Milwaukee, Adams-Friendship, Mineral Point, Ashwaubenon and Portage. We are also planning a group trip to Nashville.

Unique performing opportunities - Our group has performed at Lambeau Field, the Wisconsin State Capitol and at the White House for President Obama.

We're a self-run student organization with career-applicable leadership opportunities, including managing finances, operations, production, social media, and music direction. Many of our members have leveraged this leadership experience to land internships and jobs.

Our group has no semesterly dues or fundraising - we’re entirely self-sufficient off our performance income.

We choose and arrange all our music and learn over 20+ songs a year. You'll never be bored with our set list!

A free red jacket!


Auditions will be held Tuesday, January 30th and Wednesday, January 31st from 6-9pm in 2625 Humanities. Prior experience in organized music is preferred, but not required. We are currently in active need of a vocal percussionist

Come prepared with a 30-60 second excerpt of any song to sing that showcases your voice (preferably not a musical theater piece). There will also be a range check to determine your voice part. While a strong background in organized music (choir, band, etc.) is preferred, we do accept singers with no musical background. Fill out the form below if you're interested in auditioning - we'll get back to you!
