Clef Hangers embrace new traditions

About 1,300 people packed into Memorial Hall Saturday night for the Clef Hangers’ annual fall concert — a night complete with Carolina Blue bow ties, flawless harmonies and an eclectic mix of musical selections.

The event included a fun run where the first 100 runners were covered in pink and blue powder.

A cappella traditions differ

All-male a cappella groups the Clef Hangers and The Achordants have both enjoyed well-attended concerts in the past, but other than their ability to draw large crowds, the two groups are more different than they are alike. This weekend, both groups will offer their fall concerts to the community.


University voices spring with start of season

The birds aren't the only ones singing as UNC's a cappella season kicks into high gear.Many groups are presenting their marquee concerts as the year draws to a close."Spring is definitely the busier semester for us," said Cassie Criswell, concert manager for the Loreleis.


Singers Contend With Fan Culture

A typical show at Memorial Hall for two of the major a cappella groups at UNC is a sight to see. A sold-out house of screaming fans awaits the talented musicians, and when the singing starts, the screaming doesn't stop there.
