With Pop Concert coming early this year on October 14, 2015, Centennial’s choir groups are preparing for the big show. Centennial’s all-male A cappella group, the Acafellas, are tuning up for the quickly approaching concert.
On September 1, the Acafellas held their first meeting for the 2015-2016 school year. Senior Daniel Kelly started it off by giving a short introduction and a meet-and-greet with the returning and new members followed shortly after.
Just two months away from the show, choir director Mrs. Jessica Cummings presented a possible song choice to the group, titled “Sound Off” by Paul Rardin. Listening to the song had the guys singing and laughing because of the funny tune.
As a returning member of the club, sophomore Steven Mitchell said, “Joining Acafellas helped me get to know more people and meet with upperclassmen.”
For more information on Acafellas, see Mrs. Cummings in room 703 or visit Centennial’s music website- www.centennialmusic.org.
