Reason #52: Tours
There’s a special feeling around groups that tour. Sure, a group need not tour to put on a great show, but those that do have the experience of plying their trade on such a variety of stages, and the ease that comes with performing their material for the masses over and over again.
When collegiate a cappella groups tour, it’s often over their schools’ spring breaks. This says a lot about dedication to the group—that members are shunning Key West or time back home in favor of focusing on the music. Perhaps even more telling, I’m sure lots of the singers who partake in these tours do see it as a vacation—that there’s nowhere they’d rather be than on the road, making music with their friends.
I love it!
