Jubi’s Crush of the Month

18 Sep

Why do we have such a crush on all of the Dartmouth Aires? Look at their energy! Boys like that are bound to blow away any audience. These charmer can even belt it while layering tons of plaid and riding pseudo-cycles. The soloist, Brendan “Pseudo” Lynch-Salamon, full of fist pumps and a voice to follow, leads the crew with a vibrance that only the background members could compete with! The medley of Queen’s Bicycle Race and Fat Bottomed Girls touches on classic songs that even my grandmother loved. Definitely stick around for the especially eccentric “instrumental” part at 2:04- a tough feat in a cappella. Ride on over to W&L, Aires! Keep it up!

auditions on Sunday September 11th

19 Aug

JubiLee invites you to audition for W&L’s only all female a cappella group on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 11th

When: 12-4pm
Where: Lenfest Center, room TBA

There are just 3 things we will ask you to do:

1. Have a song prepared to sing for us… it can be any song, and we won’t make you sing the whole thing. Pick something that shows off your voice.

2. Next we’ll have you sing one verse of a song with one of our members to see how your voice blends.

3. Lastly we’ll do a few range/pitch exercises with the piano.

And that’s it!

Here is a link to sign up for an audition time.
