About Dartmouth Idol

Started in 2008, Dartmouth Idol draws students from all corners of campus to engage in a friendly, inclusive, high-energy singing competition. Chosen from dozens of entrants, a group of semi-finalists compete in a karaoke-style Semi-Finals show, from which six contestants progress to the Finals. The finalists work with Walt, each other, and other talented singers, dancers and musicians from throughout campus to fashion a spectacular culminating show. 

This year, the Dartmouth Idol Finals has been reimagined into an exciting series of virtual episodes.  Stay tuned for more information on all the dates for Finals.  All episodes will be available on demand for several days after each event so that you can watch all of the contestants and vote for your favorite!

Funded in part by a gift from Caroline Diamond Harrison '86 and Timothy C. Harrison '78 and by gifts from Friends of the Contemporary Pop Ensembles.
