A caBella’s new vision

By: Zach Johnson

A caBellas, Xavier’s female a capella club, only started a few years ago, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t time for a change.

One of the presidents of A caBellas, senior Chelsea Esmeier, shared the club’s new direction.

One big change is the type of music that the group will be singing. Influenced by films such as “Pitch Perfect,” A caBellas hopes to bring more contemporary pieces into its repetoire. The group plans to find or arrange songs from popular artists such as One Direction, Macklemore, Selena Gomez and others.

Another big change to the club is the addition of an executive board. “This is something totally new for the group, and will allow A ca- Bellas to be more organized and on top of events happening on campus,” Esmeier said.

The A caBellas will be having auditions from 7 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 4 and 5 in Edgecliff Hall. The group has six positions open for singers and one position for a beat-boxer. Audtionees must sing a part of a contemporary song around 30 seconds long.
