Fall 2013 Semester Recap

Hey Hawkafans,

Hawkapella had an awesome semester this past fall!

To start, we welcomed 6 new members into the group. It can always be difficult to assimilate this many noobs into an already tight-knit group. However, thanks to the guidance of the veterans, this was a fairly smooth process. I also feel compelled to say that aside from their great musicianship and vocal abilities, these 6 men have really proven to the group that they are true Hawkamen. I'm excited to see what we can accomplish in the spring!

In October, we hosted our second annual mid-semester concert, this time featuring the UConn Chordials. These girls are awesome and if you don't know who they are, CHECK THEM OUT. Here is their website:

The concert was a huge success. Auerbach Auditorium looked awesome and we had a great crowd. Some pictures are posted below:

In November, we had 3 gigs on 3 consecutive weekends to travel and perform as a guest group. We started with Wagner College's Vocal Synergy, then on to Clark College to sing with the Counterpoints and then finally down the road to Trinity College to perform with the Dischords. All of these groups were exceptionally hospitable and we all had a ton of fun,

Also in November, Hawkapella was one of the featured groups in Hartford Magazine on their cover story on A Cappella music.  This can be found at the link below:

At the Fall Coalition Concert in November, Hawkapella premiered its most recent L'Shir parody - check it out on our YouTube page!

Finally, after a late Thanksgiving, we hosted our Fall Semester concert. We decided to go with a beach themed because, well, why not? We also took another stab at recording the show live. Max is currently working on the post for these tracks and more info will be coming pertaining these recordings...

Hawkapella is already gearing up for the spring. Don't forget that Valentine's Day is right around the corner and Hawkapella will available to hire day and night. There may also be a CD and music video to premiere...keep on the lookout!
