A Cappella Mid-Semester Show

A Cappella Mid-Semester Show

Carroll-8734It’s that time of the semester again: a cappella groups are teaming up and singing out!

Last Friday night (2/28), campus groups the Oxford Blues and the Ford S-Chords partnered to present their Spring Mid-Semester Show.

The standing-room-only performance, which took place in Zubrow Commons, was comprised of old favorites and some new repertoire from each group. The Blues, an all-female group, performed first, in all black, with blue accents. The all-male S-Chords followed, singing in their signature white overalls.

The Blues and the S-Chords, who often perform at mid-semester shows together, have had a close sibling relationship since 1985, when both groups were founded.

The traditional S-Chords uniform for performances is casual: white painter’s overalls, t-shirts, and bare feet.
