On Friday, October 19, 2018, ConVal’s a cappella groups traveled to Winnacunnet High School in Hampton to participate in the 9th annual Voices of the 603 Festival.
As part of this festival, the students come together for a morning of workshops, rehearsal and then an adjudicated evening performance.
During the morning workshops, students had the option to attend classes on arranging music, stage presence and choreography, beatboxing, Barbershop music, working with microphones, body mapping and more. They also had the opportunity to perform for Ball in the House, a professional, Boston-based a cappella group, and receive one-on-one coaching and feedback on their performance.
During the evening portion, each student group performed two songs for adjudicators in a concert that also features university a cappella groups, various other choirs from around the state of New Hampshire, and a performance by Ball in the House.
You can watch videos of the performance here.
