What better time to highlight educators in the a cappella community than right now? In Episode 37, we sit down with Amanda Roeder, the choir director at Chelmsford High School who works with The Crescendos and The Thursdays as well as many a cappella events in the Boston area.
One of the many purposes of art is to challenge yourself and your audience and sometimes that spurs a little controversy. Brittany Russell and Gestalt are making waves and that’s one of the topics of discussion in Episode 36 .
This week on Episode 35, we went a little unconventional. Leslie Kekuewa and Pitches Be Crazy don’t fit the mold of typical a cappella and they embrace it in a way we hope more singers will. Tune in for an interview that talks diving in, real commitment, and putting on a show.
On Episode 34, Amanda and Rachael sit down with former Acaville Radio Intern, McKinley Merritt, who was a founder of VOLT. Explore the process of concept through finding success in the collegiate scene, with great tips on getting your own collegiate group off the ground.
Vocal HERspective is back tonight with the one, the only, Shelley Regner! Rachael and Amanda got to sit down with this lovely human who happened to be a part of Pitch Perfect and DCappella. Seriously, she’s the sweetest PLUS she has lots of great thoughts to share. A must-listen episode!
This week we’re sitting down with Jo Eteson, longtime soprano of The Swingles. We could elaborate for hours about her talent and experience, but we’ll just leave it at: she is a living legend. And an incredibly kind and generous legend at that.
A relatively new group, The Crescendos have wasted no time making big strides. This young group out of Chelmsford High School are recent winners of their ICHSA quarterfinal, and a shining example of the newest generation of a cappella singers.
