On Saturday November 12th, Kettering Fairmont High will host the 4th annual A Cappella Festival. These events are springing up around the country but Fairmont believes they are blazing the trail. Brody McDonald is the Choir Director at Fairmont - a job he's held for 13 years. The job has its challenges.
The Los Angeles based a capella group known as Sonos stops by WYSO to chat with Niki Dakota and perform live on Excursions.
Sonos consists of 6 well trained vocalists who met while attending school in Southern California (each of them studying Music). Sonos combines a classical background with contemporary vocal stylings including beat-boxing and electronic modification to create an exciting modern sound that has its roots in the fundamentals of vocal choir.
