The doors to the event will open at 6:00 p.m.. There will be a recommended donation of two dollars at the door. Donations from the concert will be split between two memorial funds dedicated to aid those affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting. These funds are UConn’s own memorial fund and a fund organized by UConn’s Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority.
The concert will feature all eight of the A cappella groups here on campus such as the men’s group, Conn Men and the women’s group, Rubyfruit. Rubyfruit’s repertoire includes pieces such as “Lights” by Ellie Goulding and “Stuck like Glue” by Sugarland.
On Feb. 4, the A cappella groups will be holding auditions in the Music Building. Prospective members should go to Atrium of the building. There will be a brief informational meeting at 6 p.m. where presidents will brief prospective members on the requirements of being in one of the groups. Auditions will begin at 6:30 p.m.
