Great Spring College A Cappella Concert on March 19, 2016

Saturday, March 19, 7:30pm
WHS Main Stage

We had a great turnout and fantastic singing at the Spring College A Cappella Concert! The Brick City Singers from RIT got the evening off to a great start with their rock and doo-wop repertoire. Even their shirts sported festive spring colors. The Brown’sTones from Brown University blew us away with their Dig Medley, The Chain, and more. The Nor’easters from Northeastern made us Sorry to see their set end the show. They filled the auditorium with their strong voices, even when singing without microphones! Wayland’s Muses, T-Tones and Madrigals also performed strong sets. The audience showed their appreciation throughout with applause, hoots, cheers and a standing ovation. And as always, the free dessert buffet at intermission was consumed with great gusto.

Thanks to all the performers and volunteers for making the show so successful, and thanks to everyone who came out to support the arts at Wayland High School!

Our next concert will be in December 2016. Watch this space and follow us on Facebook for announcements of the groups and concert date.
