- Introducing.... **** The ClefHangers ****
We are two talented singers/musicians forming a 4 part SATB (Soprano, Alto,
Tenor Bass) a cappella singing group based in San Francisco. We are
auditioning for a bass and a female voice (ideally someone who can and wants
to sing both soprano and alto parts alternately). We may then look to add a
5th part/male vocal percussionist. We will be developing a "signature" sound
with pop, jazz, doo-wop, soul and classical influences, with the goal of
singing 50% original arrangements. We are serious, ambitious and fun! Our
standard repertoire will be selected and developed from a variety of
arrangers, composers and genres, which will include numbers from the CASA
song books, and other popular jazz and a cappella literature.
We will both be atteding the a cappella summit and will be handing out
flyers. Look for our logo (attached).
Perhaps you are like me (I'm the female voice), a college educated musician,
jazz fanatic and instrumentalist, who loves a cappella and wants to be a
part of a very successful group. Maybe you are already in a group and are
frustrated because you aren't challenged and want more. Maybe you are an
instrumentalist who has always dabbled in singing and knows that you have a
tremendous untapped gift. If any of this rings a bell, you might be the one
Maybe you are like me. (I'm the tenor), a natural musician with instrumental
training (trombone and piano) with a penchant for singing and performing for
audiences. That magical vibration that occurs when voices harmonize singing
a cappella is what really gets me going! My goal for the group is to create
a unique, quality sound that appeals to a wide variety of audiences, while
challenging my own singing abilities allowing me to grow as a musician.
Ultimately we plan to compete at a regional level and cut a CD of our own
and gig professionally. Hopefully you share some of these aspirations!
