Help Get Schola Cantorum to Belgium!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Arkansas chapter.

The U of A Schola Cantorum has recently entered the Macy’s A Capella Challenge for a grand prize of $25,000! Click here for the link to watch the performance. We ask that everyone check out the video on YouTube and share, share, share so that it can get as much exposure as possible! We are in it to win it! #ScholaWantsYouBack 

As a part of the choir myself, I very much enjoyed learning and performing this rendition of the Jackson Five’s I Want You Back. We worked very hard to perfect our submission, and if we win the prize money it will go directly to funding our international tour in May! The choir will be touring in Brussels, Belgium, performing at many different venues in Belgium and one in Amsterdam.

Special shoutout to our incredible soloist, Dr. Jeffrey Murdock! He is the Associate Director of Choral Activities and conducts the Inspirational Chorale and the Men’s Chorus here at the university, and also teaches other courses in the music department.

When you share, don’t forget to hashtag, #ScholaWantsYouBack!
