Welcome to our 2022 Macy’s Singing Christmas Tree audition site! On behalf of the entire Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade team, we are so excited to offer the return of this exciting parade experience to you, the talented employees of Macy’s and Bloomingdales and Bluemercury!
Now, in order to get to know you and your talent a little better, we ask you to follow this simple online audition process. First, Click on the “Resources” tab above to download music tracks and sheet music needed for your audition.
Once inside the audition site, we will ask for some contact information and for you to share some of your previous singing and choral experiences.
The most important application materials you submit will be your audition videos. These videos do not need to be professional quality; a simple video recorded with your smartphone is perfectly sufficient. Please note, however, that you should review your video and make sure it’s of good quality — make sure your singing voice sounds clear and offers a good representation of your sound. This year, we’ve once again added piano accompaniment for your audition video. Please be sure to use the piano track when making your recording. Keep in mind, the selection committee needs to hear your voice clearly in order to make the proper decisions. We will consider your voice for multiple voice parts based on your range and the other applicants. You should only submit ONE application.
We will also request a video of yourself answering a few simple questions. Please film this video blog-style, looking directly into the camera, answering the questions candidly and casually. Remember, personality counts so be sure to let your spirit shine through!
This year, we've added an additional singing video option for those who would like the freedom to show off your voice and personality. This video should feature 16 bars a cappella of any song of your choice. Note: this video is 100% optional.
We’ve intentionally kept this audition process simple so that every colleague from the Macy's and Bloomingdales and Bluemercury can participate. Whether you’re a trained singer or just a singing sensation in your shower, everyone is welcome to audition!
Most of all, we hope you have fun with it! Best of luck to all!
