Reason #82: Post-Collegiate Groups
For plenty of people who sing a cappella, the end of college marks the end of an active career in the form. But then there are those folks who simply cannot get enough—the ones who go out and start their own groups, or seek out existing ensembles in which they can continue to ply their trade and continue the bonds unique to the a cappella community and groups therein.
Sure there are opportunities for post-collegiate groups to compete, and some groups will take shape with designs of recording albums or touring. But there are also those ensembles that get together for the sheer elements of making music and enjoying the community. Whatever path a particular group chooses, the fact remains these groups prove each and every day that a cappella doesn’t have to stop at the scholastic level. Continuing to make music is one of the most intrinsically rewarding experiences in the world.
The best part about post-collegiate groups? Year by year, their numbers are growing.
I love it!
