Wow. It’s been a bit more than ten short weeks since we first started our year with the audition process, and fall quarter is already over. We’re settling into the swing of things, and we’ve had an awesome quarter – so, since we haven’t posted on here in a while, it made sense to give you all an update! It’s gonna be a big one, so fasten your seatbelts and prepare to get in a car accident with KNOWLEDGE!
First, we’ve got a gig THIS WEEKEND (Sat. Nov 20) with RPI’s Partial Credit – the show starts at 8pm in Mothers in the RPI Union, so if you’re in the Troy area, definitely try to stop by! We’re so excited for our first road trip of the year and we’re honored to be visiting our friends at RPI!
Now some sad news: it’s with a heavy heart that we’ll be wishing farewell to baritone Dave Collins until next fall – he’ll be on co-op for the winter and spring quarters in sunny Philadelphia. He’ll be missed until then, but we definitely expect to see him at NOAC 11. Or else.
On that note – our eleventh annual Night of a Cappella (henceforth referred to as NOAC) is actually less than a year away! So we might as well announce the date so you can purchase plane tickets, reserve hotel rooms, and buy all of us gifts! NOAC 11 will be Saturday, March 26, 2011. We’ll have PLENTY more details as the date draws nearer, but it’s great to get that off our chest.
So, with all of that said, we plan to have an excellent Thanksgiving break after our show this Saturday. The Christmas season is almost upon us, so expect some caroling when we return! If you want BCS to sing some Christmas tunes at your event during the month of December, PLEASE book us using our website! You can also just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – we’re happily accepting gigs, so be sure to book us before someone else does!
Stay tuned for some groundbreaking surprises early next quarter!

The world’s favorite and most loved Men in Hawaiian have been preparing for their first gig, and it’s going to be right here in RIT’s own Ingle Auditorium!
This is RIT’s Kaleidoscope Concert, part of the Brick City Homecoming, where not only will you hear us, but plenty of other music groups on RIT’s campus. You’ll get some earthquake bass to listen to from a song we started late last year, as well as a brand new song we’ve been prepping for you ladies and gents. Prepare for your mind to be blown.
Get ready to rock next Saturday!

The time has come again to welcome some new faces into our group! BCS would like to welcome 3 ballin’ new members. On top we have our new tenor 1, Jon Zimmermann! To join our earth-quakin’ bass section, we welcome Jon Greene and Jace Curran into the mix! By adding these crazy 3 we now have a solid 12 hawaiian-wearing, fun-loving, rock-your-face-off singing Brick City Singers!
Make sure to check up on Encore, Vocal Accent, Proof of Purchase, Surround Sound, and 8 Beat Measure to see their new members as well! Keep an eye out HERE for updated bios and other news!
So with the first round of auditions and the general information meeting out of the way, we’d like to announce our list of Rush events for the upcoming week!
On Monday, September 13th, we’ll be opening up the second half of our rehearsal to all potential members. Come at 9pm to the Fireside Lounge (in the Campus Center, Bldg. 3) and you’ll learn a brand new song with all of us and even get to sing it with us as a group! It’s a great way to see how quickly you pick up music and how well you blend.
On Tuesday, September 14th, we’re having an informational meeting/game night. It’ll take place from 8-10pm in NRH 1250 – the same place that tonight’s informational meeting took place. This will be an opportunity to just hang out with the group, ask any questions you might have, and learn more about what we do behind the scenes when we’re not singing! Did we mention there’ll be games?
While neither of these events are required (if you have class, that’s obviously more important!), they’re great ways for us to gauge your interest in the group and learn more about you. They’re also great ways for you to learn more about us and see if you’ll be a good fit for the group! So come out if you can – otherwise, we’ll see you at round two of auditions in the SAU music room on Thursday, September 16th at 9pm!
