Excitement filled the air as students and community members gathered in Polk Place on Monday to hear UNC's a cappella groups perform in front of South Building.
Sunset Serenade is an annual a cappella concert hosted by the Student Alumni Association to celebrate the new school year.
“Each performance is a little bit different," Brooke Willse, concert manager for the UNC Tarpeggios, said. "And since this was such a special performance, I think we all felt this incredible energy just seeing all the students here and seeing their reaction and feeding off of their energy and celebrating the start of the year, which will hopefully be a wonderful year."
Willse attended Sunset Serenade last year and said she was enamored with all the groups, but she felt something click inside of her as she watched the Tarpeggios. Getting to perform with them this year as a member felt special, she said.
With auditions right around the corner, Sunset Serenade gives a cappella groups the chance to showcase their music to the UNC community and reach new talent.
