Music students from UT, area high schools and multiple states will have the opportunity this week to learn from an expert—Avi Kaplan, bass vocalist in the Grammy award-winning a cappella group Pentatonic. The group formed in 2011 and won the third season of NBC’s vocal competition show, “The Sing-Off.”
ReVOLution, UT’s all-women a cappella group, trumped challengers from several major universities this weekend to advance to the national semifinals of a collegiate a cappella competition. The ensemble performed in Athens, Georgia, on Saturday in the regional finals of the 2013 International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. The ensemble’s next stop is the national semifinals in Nashville on March 23. ReVOLution is the first UT group ever accepted into the international competition.
