The Dartmouth Idol Semi-finals will showcase the talent of Dartmouth students from across campus, singing a variety of music from classical to contemporary. This year, go behind-the-scenes and watch the process as students audition to become the next Dartmouth Idol!


Dartmouth Idol auditions have gone virtual this year, so grab your phone and raise your voice! We're kicking off Idol early this year, so we have plenty of time for you talented contestants to be mentored and workshop their acts leading up to the Semi-Finals on January 9th. The Dartmouth Idol Finals will take place in Winter 2021.

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 a month later. In the intervening month, the finalists work with Walt, each other, and other talented singers, dancers and musicians from throughout campus to fashion a spectacular culminating show.

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.
