The High C's - Stony Brook University's All-Male A Cappella Group!
 
The High C's finally have a long-awaited travel opportunity! We're driving up to SMACC - the Social Media A Cappella Conference - in Syracuse, New York! SMACC is a three-day event, from April 1-3, created to showcase some of the most cutting edge a cappella music in the country. Along with workshops being held by some of the most forward thinking minds on the a cappella scene, SMACC will also be featuring performances by pro groups such as The Red States, Sonos and Nota, the winners of The Sing Off Season 1!

Now, while we're looking forward to this awesome learning opportunity, it's not the only reason we're going. For we also hope to compete against five other student groups in the Collegiate Competition! the 1st place winner receives vouchers for 25% off next year's SMACC, a free Masterclass with a pro group, the opportunity to open for the professional showcase on April 2nd and a feature spot on Mouth Off!, the premiere a cappella podcast! So, yeah, it's kind of a big deal. We've sent in an audition video and we should be learning of the results within the week. Fingers crossed, High C's faithful, fingers crossed...

Before SMACC, we've got a local gig to take care of! Next Saturday, March 12th, we're going to Centereach High School for their annual A Cappella Invitational. Come by if you want to support us as well as many other great groups!

Incoming gig! Our friends at Centereach High School have invited us to perform at their annual A Cappella Invitational on Saturday, March 12th, at 7:30 PM! We'll be performing alongside several groups from the local area and Centereach High School itself, as well as the Pitches and the Pointercounts from SUNY Potsdam. Just in time too, 'cause we've got two new songs in the works: Trashin'  the Camp by Phil Collins/N'Sync and If I Fell by Paul McCartney/John Lennon! Both of these songs were arranged for a cappella by our own Solomon Husain and Roy Lotz, respectively. We'll have at least one of them ready for March!

Lastly, if anyone out there has an idea, suggestion, inkling, notion or hunch as to what songs you'd like us to hear, leave a comment her or on our Facebook page or Tweet us!

In other news, our new members finally have their group sweatshirts - er, uniforms - so now, once again, you know we're legit! 
"But, High C's," you say, "I was once a member of your prestigious organization yet I have all but naught to show for it. Is there a way for me to show my pride and appreciation for my time in the illustrious Stony Brook High C's by owning a customized clothing article of my very own?" 
Why yes, oddly articulate alumnus, there is! If you are an alumnus of the High C's and want a sweatshirt with our logo and your name on it, shoot us an email and we'd be happy to put in an order for you! We've also got some fan gear in the works, so as always, we'll let you know as things progress. All clothing courtesy of http://www.customink.com/.

Come check us out tomorrow, February 9th from 12-2 PM, at the Spring Semester Involvement Fair. If you're looking to join a club at Stony Brook, look no further! All of the university's clubs, organizations, fraternities and sororities (including the High C's, of course) are lining up in the Student Activities Center to show their stuff to prospective new members. That said, we're unfortunately not holding auditions this semester, as we are full to capacity. If you are interested in joining the High C's, however, keep an eye on the Facebook, Twitter, campus billboards or right here on the blog for any information on auditions for the 2011-2012 semester!
