My other hobby

YouTube videos of my a cappella group's International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella performance are up at long last!

Don't Bring Me Down


Afternoon Delight

Musically it wasn't 100% of what we can do, particularly the second song, but given that we had three weeks to learn two of those songs plus all the choreography, and given that many of us were sick or just wearing out our voices from practicing so much, I'm quite happy with it.

We came in 4th of 8 groups and I happen to know that one of the three judges thought we were the best group competing, so we did quite well for the first UChicago group ever to compete in anything, let alone at this level (ICCAs are a big deal). We didn't get to advance to semifinals, but that was just fine with us--we needed to have lives again at some point.

I'm the one in the blue tights. Enjoy!
