the beginning

We aren’t seeing a lot of new a cappella groups since the Sing-Off was cancelled a few years ago.  In fact, we’ve been losing a few of them each year.  Why?  Well, it’s really hard.  After complaining about the lack of fresh talent for concerts and festivals, we finally decided to do something about it.

the beta test

Our first summer was an experiment of sorts.  I got some of my most gifted former students together for one week during the summer.  We arranged four songs, recorded one of them, shot music videos for all of them, and put on a 40 minute concert.  June was officially born. We learned a lot about what it takes to consistently produce new content and work effectively as artists.  While those students moved on to exciting career and scholastic opportunities, they showed what was possible in just one week when the right people come together with vision.
