Hark the sound of Tar Heel voices. All-male, all-female and co-ed a cappella groups around the University are warming up for a busy year with auditions beginning this week.
The Clef Hangers, the first all-male a cappella group at the University, are widely known not only for their rendition of songs but also for their onstage charm.
But it is not all fun and games. With a repertoire including everything from James Taylor to Lil' Jon, the Clefs work hard to perfect their sound.
President David Mikush said in an e-mail that the Clefs demonstrate a work-hard, play-hard attitude.
Auditions began Aug. 28 and will continue through the end of today, with sign-up sheets available both in the Pit and in the Carolina Union.
Entering their 25th anniversary season, the Loreleis, one of the University's all-female a cappella groups, are excited to include a more popular repertoire this season.
"I think our main goal is to get a very diverse repertoire and take from every genre," said Lib Curlee, the group's business manager.
