UCF’s nascent a cappella student group Contemporary A Cappella (CAC) recently invited me to become their faculty/staff advisor, and I’m delighted to join them. The group includes a men’s ensemble, a women’s ensemble, and a women’s barbershoppy group. They’ve also had fits and starts with a mixed group. As elsewhere in the collegiate a cappella movement, they concentrate on contemporary pop songs, use a lot of vocal percusion and beat boxing, while emulating modern instrumental accompanyment.
This coming weekend, they are hosting a Florida mini-conference with groups from other colleges and universities, and saturday evening there will be a show on the UCF campus at 7pm. Some group photos here.
