As the semester comes to a close, a number of a cappella groups on campus — including Halftime, Harmonia, The Echoes, Unchained Melodies and The Undertones — are set to perform their seasonal concerts.
Senior Anthony Caputo, Halftime co-president, said he is excited for people to attend their upcoming concert since it will truly showcase all of Halftime’s hard work throughout the semester.
“This year we tried to arrange more based off of solo voice rather than just arranging songs and then putting a voice on it, and we have found this to be much more successful when making all of our songs,” he said. “We think people will see that in our concert, which we are really excited about.”
Senior Rachel Warne, co-president of Harmonia, said she hopes Harmonia’s diverse mix of modern, alternative, pop and throwback tunes will provide songs everyone will enjoy.
While all the a cappella groups on campus work toward their respective concerts, each group considers the relationships between members to be of great importance.
“We’ve worked really hard to make sure the atmosphere in the club is one that’s tight knit and kind of familial,” Warne said. “It’s really nice to have group of people on campus that you have ties with automatically.”
Senior Matt Williams, president of The Echoes, said the members of The Echoes don’t take themselves too seriously, and they look forward to Christmas caroling outside of DeBartolo Hall and O’Shaughnessy Hall to spread Christmas cheer in the upcoming weeks.
