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.
The daily lives for these musicians isn't quite as exciting as a show at Memorial Hall, but they do get some attention simply walking around campus. Members of popular a cappella groups like the all-male Clef Hangers and the all-female Loreleis know the benefits of small-time fame.
Rebecca Andrews, a senior business major and current member of the Loreleis met her boyfriend, a Clef Hanger, through her involvement with the Loreleis.
They met in the spring of 1999 and had their first performance together in the fall of the same year. After that performance they became good friends and began dating one year later, in the spring of 2000. They are still dating.
Andrews said this is not an uncommon situation. There is "a lot of intergroup dating" between the Clefs and the Loreleis, she said.
