Clever A Capella Group Now Incorporating Instruments To Distinguish Itself

Published Monday, October 31st, 2022

According to campus sources, Brown’s newest a capella group, the Orchestars, has distinguished itself from campus’ many other a cappella groups through playing instruments alongside the classic all-vocal style.
The Orchestars’ groundbreaking fall show consisted of a glorious mix of discordant instruments that nearly covered up the group’s vocal harmonies and beat-boxing. Audience members report being thrilled to finally hear an a capella group do something unique.
“With such a dense concentration of a capella groups on campus, filling pretty much every niche imaginable, we needed a way to stand out,” said Orchestars president Sean McMasters while cranking the volume on his guitar amp. “And the answer was almost too easy: musical instruments!”
“Honestly, I can’t believe no one’s thought of performing a capella with in- struments before,” said freshman member Clara Anderson, rehearsing Ed Sheeran songs on her keyboard. “I really think we can revolutionize the a capella world.”
Elsewhere on campus, the sailing team was preparing to dominate their opponents with their newly acquired motor.
