Stevenson University will hold its third annual A Cappella Fest on Mar. 30, 2016, at 7 p.m., a free event located in the Rockland Banquet room.
A cappella music is described as music performed solo or as a group without any instrument or accompaniment. Originating from Jewish and Christian worship, this way of singing, now currently trending, is practiced by various groups across the world.
Ball in the House, a professional male a cappella group, will be featured this year, along with a collaboration of various a cappella groups on campus, including AllNatural and an a cappella version of the BSU Gospel Choir.
Award-winning Ball in the House is a Boston-based group that includes R&B, soul and pop, performing 200 shows per year. Ball in the House has performed with headliners including Jessica Simpson, Smokey Robinson and the Beach Boys. The group has also appeared on the Today Show and America’s Got Talent, and is presently a trending topic on social media. The group has been chosen as 2013 Association for Promotion of Campus Activities Band of the Year.
Ball in the House will greet the Stevenson campus with pictures before and after the performance, generating an overall exciting evening for the university.
It was also a mission for the members of Student Activities to discover a group that has great talent and seek out an entertainer that will appeal to a variety of students on campus.
Hope Miller, assistant director of student activities, said, “I think it’s always exciting to be able to bring music to the campus.” Mustang Activities and Programming (MAP) hopes for an audience of over 250.
