A Cappella Audition (2017)
Sunset's a cappella group is an auditioned extra-curricular ensemble made up of 12-16 members. They sing popular music using only their voices with no instrumental accompaniment. Rehearsals are Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:40 - 3:30. By auditioning, you are committing to attending all rehearsals as a productive member of our group for the entire year; you will be held to a high standard throughout your time in the group.
