This fall, a group of seventh and eighth grade students took a cappella as their music elective for the first trimester. While working together in a vocal ensemble, students practiced harmonizing, singing from chords, beatboxing, thinking about vocal arrangements, stage presence, projecting their voice as a soloist, and how to change a variety of musical elements to enhance their performance. Students shared their hard work at an October Sharing Assembly, where they performed a song called “I Say So” by the artists Chloe x Halle. As their final project, they learned an arrangement of a song by Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile titled “I Have a Voice.” Check out the video recordings of both performances. Bravo, a cappella students!
