UT to Host Collegiate A Cappella Regional Sing-off February 7

Ten southern collegiate a cappella groups will compete this weekend at UT for a chance to advance to the national stage.

The community is invited to attend the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella South Quarterfinal at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 7, in the Sandra G. Powell Recital Hall of the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center.
