A Cappella Festival at junior high

October 30, 2013

High school a cappella groups from all over the Midwest converge on Clarkston Junior High School, Nov. 2, for the Clarkston A Cappella Festival.

Groups will learn a cappella basics such as a cappella arranging, beat-boxing, and rehearsal techniques for both students and directors. The day will culminate in an evening concert at 7:30 p.m., featuring the group Eleventh Hour.

The high school a cappella group from Kettering, Ohio, which has been featured on NBC’s The Sing-Off, will provide workshops and individual vocal clinics for groups during the day.

The festival will also feature Clarkston High School group Detroit Voice, which will also open for Eleventh Hour at the concert. Detroit Voice, directed by Clarkston choral director Brian Haverkate, was recently featured on the Best of High School A Cappella CD, and nominated for Favorite High School A Cappella Group and Favorite High School Album for Sounds Like Home by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America.
