The purity and beauty of a capella singing lies in its deceptively simple blend of voices, unencumbered by other musical instruments. So how can technology improve upon something that seems the very epitome of ‘no-tech’? By allowing the singers to better hear and record their voices, this grant of microphones, mixers and speakers will greatly enhance public performances while expanding and deepening the level of music the choir program can perform. In addition to Hopkins’ two a capella choirs, Geoff and Midori, all HHS choir students will be able to use this equipment for recordings, auditions, and assessments. This grant funds equipment to enhance the overall quality of Hopkins’ renowned vocal music program, and is a wonderful marriage between technology and fine art.
