The High C's - Stony Brook University's All-Male A Cappella Group!
 
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/.

Check back here or on our Facebook/Twitter for more info as it arises! Don't forget to Like and Follow us as well, it makes us feel important.
 
 
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!

Do you have a suggestion for a song you think we should arrange and perform? Let us know! Post a comment on our Facebook Page, leave a comment on the blog post or shoot us a Tweet!
 
 
The south has SoJam. The west coast has the Los Angeles A Cappella Festival. What do the northeast or mid-atlantic have as far as a cappella events go? Unfortunately, not a thing...


Until now.


This May, Stony Brook University will be host to the first annual North Atlantic A Cappella Festival! This will be a massive gathering of a cappella groups, both from high schools and colleges as well as professional ensembles, from across the northeastern United States and Canada. We'll have competitions for the school groups and classes or seminars for any who are interested in learning techniques. It's an event not just for those interested in a cappella, but for anyone who loves music and a good time! It's still in the planning stages so we will update you, our amazing fans, every step of the way, right here as well as on our Facebook and Twitter!

The Involvement Fair is a chance for all of Stony Brook's clubs and organizations to show their stuff to prospective students, an we finally have a table this year!

We just held our annual e-board elections! So, it should really say "One More Year" but who's counting, right?

And the e-board lineup is...largely unchanged, actually. Randy Pierce Tai, Mike Chipp and Brian Lynch are still our president, secretary and treasurer, respectively. The title of Vice President, however, goes to Jeston Lewis! Congradulations!


The year is wrapping up as we finish off our last few gigs. Thanks to all those who came to the RHA Masquerade Ball! It was a blast! On the 9th, we're being interviewed on WUSB 90.1 FM, the university's radio station! Tune in!

Finally, we're starting a new project for those who wish to participate in a cappella performance over the summer! We'll be collaborating with many new faces to create an enjoyable a cappella experience for both men and women around during the summer!
 
 
We had a BLAST at Potsdam! Big thanks go out to the Pitches, the Pointercounts and A Sharp Arrangement for feeding us, housing us, singing with us and, of course, partying with us! We've gotta do it again soon!


We've got our sweatshirts! We'll have plenty of new photos up soon!


We're winding down the semester with a few more gigs on May 1st and May 5th! We'll update with more information within the day.
