Reason #79: Combining New Energy with Experienced Voices
A part of what’s particularly compelling for me about scholastic a cappella groups is the potential to see groups grow and change over time because group members are all in the process of figuring themselves out as performers, and because there’s a constant movement of experienced members graduating or moving on to new endeavors and new voices coming up to join the ranks.
As students mature and advance into leadership roles, the new members offer the perfect complement—new and different skills, personalities and abilities; new energy and ideas; and all of the excitement that comes with just starting a new endeavor. The combination of these factors contributes to a uniquely scholastic sound, and a unique capacity to accomplish entirely new feats in the a cappella world.
I love it!
