The DTH's Laney Currin spoke with president of the Walk-Ons and a junior at UNC, Logan Kaelin, about the group's expectations for the rest of the school year as part of a series featuring the a cappella groups on campus.
This interview has been edited for brevity and clarity.
The Daily Tar Heel: What would you say are the benefits of being a mixed gender a cappella group?
Logan Kaelin: I think being a mixed gender group gives you a lot more variety in terms of the songs that you can do.
We have a very wide range of voices, from our lowest bass to our highest soprano, and that gives you a lot more options and versatility when it comes to arrangements and genre of songs and the soloists for songs and stuff like that.
I think that's probably the biggest benefit.
DTH: What are you as a group, looking forward to this year?
LK: I would say we're really looking forward to both of our concerts. We have one this fall, on Nov. 17, and then we'll have another one in the spring.
Our concerts, we do one every semester and it's just like — that's just like the end goal, so everyone's always looking forward to it and it's super fun and super exciting. All our friends and family come.
