Friday Factoid: James Van Der Beek

On selected Fridays, The A Cappella Blog publishes a fact, statistic or piece of history from collegiate a cappella. We welcome readers to share their own bits of uncommon knowledge, or to pose questions if there's a Friday Factoid they'd like to see.

During his undergraduate career at Drew University, in Madison, NJ, Van Der Beek was a part of the all-male a cappella group, 36 Madison Avenue. Van Der Beek was a part of the class of 1999.

36 Madison Avenue was founded in 1987 and is still going strong today, advancing to the ICCA semifinals as recently as last year, in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
