Reason #126: Clean Sound
Here at The A Cappella Blog, we spend a great deal of time talking about a cappella accoutrements like staging, song selection, and overall presentation. In it’s purest form, though, a cappella is all about the vocals—some of the most talented singers at a school, in a community, or even in the world using their most natural instrument to make music with their ensembles. As such, one of the truest joys of listening a cappella can be hearing a perfectly clean sound.
It’s Ohio State High Street A Cappella aweing the live crowd at the University of Rochester at an ICCA show in 2006 with their take on old-fashioned favorites like “Georgia” and “Late in the Evening.” It’s University Rocktavo, merging classical sensibilities and crystal clear vocals with a great sense of humor to keep the audience surprised and smiling.
I love it!
